Dayton, Rollo. Rollo Dayton was created by “Walter Edwards,” the pseudonym of Walter Shute (Barry Keene, Grant Swift), and appeared in at least twenty-four stories in The Boys’ Friend from 1922 to at least 1924, possibly beginning with “Ordered Off” (The Boys’ Friend, Sept. 16, 1922). Rollo Dayton is a noble English lad who falls into the power of a sinister Duke and has to carry out tasks for him. Despite this, Dayton does his best to fight for truth, justice, and the British way, and endures jail and humiliation while helping others. In the end, Dayton triumphs and the Duke is defeated.
