Campion, Albert. Albert Campion was created by Margery Allingham (Red Rose) and appeared in thirty-two stories and serials and twenty-three novels and short story collections from 1928 to 1970, beginning with “The Border-Line Case” (The Strand, 1928).
Albert Campion is the child of an aristocratic family who begins his literary career as "a lunatic...quite inoffensive...just a silly ass" and who claims to be a con man and criminal-for-hire. Allingham soon changed her opinion of Campion and made him a more serious character, if still a Fop. (After World War Two Campion loses his foppishness). He becomes a detective and then an agent for British Intelligence. Campion is assisted by Magersfontein Lugg, a reformed criminal.
