Blair Coán in 1924

Blair Coán (born ca. 1884) was a Chicago newspaperman and Post Office investigator. He was the author of The Red Web (1925) and Blood Money (1927). In 1922 Coán traveled to Tampico, Mexico, where he learned from an American Comintern agent of a communist conspiracy to take over the world. Three years later Coán published The Red Web, and warned that communist revolutionaries were planning to overthrow the U.S. government.[1] In the book Coán claimed the resignation of Attorney General Harry M. Daugherty was part of a communist conspiracy planned in Moscow.[2]

In 1937 Blair Coán worked with Dr. Francis Townsend in the promotion of his pension plan.[3]
