Christopher Michael Langan (born March 25, 1952) is an American horse rancher and author, who has scored extremely high on multiple IQ tests. Langan’s IQ has been estimated on ABC’s 20/20 to be between 195 and 210, and he has been described as “the smartest man in America” as well as “the smartest man in the world” by some journalists.
Christopher Michael Langan was born in 1952 in San Francisco, California but spent most of his childhood in Montana. His mother, Mary Langan-Hansen (née Chappelle, 1932 – 2014), was the daughter of a wealthy shipping executive but was cut off from her family. His biological father, Melvin Letman, died or disappeared before he was born.
Langan’s support of “conspiracy theories“, including the 9/11 Truther movement and the “white genocide conspiracy theory“, and his opposition to miscegenation have contributed to him amassing a following among members of the alt-right. Journalists have described some of Langan’s Internet posts as racist, and accused him of veiled antisemitism in some of his other posts.
