Clancy, Peter J. Peter J. Clancy was created by H. Bedford-Jones (John Bradford, James Bronson, Denis Burke (I), Denis Burke (II), Burket & O’Neill, Dick Clews, Cosgrave & Lundgren, Crawford, Riley Dillon, Colin Haig, Pinky Jenkins, Jungle Girl, Tertius March, Say-and-See Smith, John Solomon, Strato-Shooters, Hugh Tyrone) and appeared in six stories in Blue Book Magazine in 1926, beginning with “Clancy, Detective” (Blue Book Magazine, Apr. 1926). Peter J. Clancy, D.D.S., is “small, about five foot five in his boots, and had long gray hair and a gray imperial. His clothes were black once, perhaps, but now they were greenish and frayed; he wore the red ribbon of the Legion in his buttonhole. His face was wrinkled–kindly, shrewd wrinkles, they were–and his eyes were very bright, of a piercing gray.” He is a dentist and has been practicing in Paris for fifteen years, and has come to resemble the natives in most ways, from looks to speech to attitude. As a sideline he helps out the Préfect of Police on various difficult cases. He is cheerful, smart, and learned in the ways of criminals. He also puts his knowledge of dentistry and stamps (he collects) to good use in solving various crimes. Clancy is Watsoned by Jim Logan, an Army veteran and boxer.
