Coningsby Dawson (1883- 1959) was an Anglo-American author, born at High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England.

He graduated at Merton College, Oxford, in 1905 and in the sane year went to America, where he did special work for English newspapers on Canadian subjects, traveling widely during the period. He lived at Taunton, Massachusetts, from 1906 to 1910, when he became literary adviser to the George H. Doran Publishing Company.

He joined the Canadian army at the front in 1916, and continued in service until the end of the War. After having been wounded he came twice to the United States (1917, 1918) on lecture tours. In 1918, he investigated for the British Ministry of Information, American military preparedness in France.

In 1919, he went to England to study European reconstruction problems, and subsequently lectured on the subject of the United States. He also visited and reported on the devastated regions of Central and Eastern Europe at the request of Herbert Hoover.
