Carr, Catch-‘em-Alive. Catch-‘em-Alive Carr was created by “Jack Maxwell,” the pseudonym of Ernest McKeag (Clipper Craig, Cocksure Kelly, Nick Norton, Stanton Stern, Malcolm Swift), and appeared in a number of stories in Triumph in 1931, beginning with “On the Track of a Man-Eater!” (Triumph, July 18, 1931).

Freddy Carr is “five-foot-nothing of sheer concentrated pluck and grit.” Carr is also hot-tempered, boastful, and quick to fight, and hires himself out to an Englishman in Singapore to live-capture wild animals across Southeast Asia and bring them back for European zoos.
