Connor, Vincent. Vincent Connor was created by H. Bedford-Jones (John Bradford, James Bronson, Denis Burke (I), Denis Burke (II), Burket & O’Neill, Peter J. Clancy, Dick Clews, Cosgrave & Lundgren, Crawford, Riley Dillon, Colin Haig, Pinky JenkinsJungle Girl, Tertius March, Say-and-See Smith, John Solomon, Sphinx (II)Strato-Shooters, Hugh Tyrone) and appeared in six stories in Argosy and Short Stories from 1931 to 1932, beginning with “A Prince for Sale” (Argosy, June 13, 1931).  

Vincent Connor is the CEO of Connor Enterprises, active in China for two generations. To appearances, Connor is a Fop who prefers to play polo than to tend to the serious business of his business. But in reality Connor is a grim fighter who wages a quiet war against those who would harm China, the country that he loves.

To this indefinable cause of justice, of aiding the oppressed, he flung his weight of wealth and connections, his personal abilities, his knowledge of China and its people. Not the least of his aids was his own reputation; the last person to be suspected of such things was the coxcomb and dandy, the young spendthrift from college who had inherited the Connor fortunes.

Connor is a master of disguise and is assisted by Chang, his father’s business partner and still a major part of Connor’s businesses.
