Paul Blanshard (d. 1980; age 87) was a famous anti-Catholic bigot. His works have been referred to as those of a "professional" bigot differentiating them from less literary, less sophisticated efforts such as those of Jack Chick. Blanshard's most notorious work is American Freedom and Catholic Power (1951). Other works of anti-Catholic bigotry include The Irish and Catholic Power (1953) and Kennedy presidency-obsessed work The Future of Catholic Power (1961). 
Blanshard was editor for The Nation and special counsel and spokesman for Americans United for Separation of Church and State. He was also a member of the National Council for the League for Industrial Democracy, for the Rochester, New York area.
