Dousman, Hercules. Hercules Dousman (1800-1868) was a fur trader and farmer in Wisconsin and later in life became a significant member of Wisconsin society. August Derleth (Judge Peck, Solar Pons, Laban Shrewsbury) made him the hero of Bright Journey (1940) and The House on the Mound (1958), two novels about Dousman’s activities on behalf of John Jacob Astor in the Northwest Territories in 1812 and 1813.
