Evans, Chew. Chew Evans was created by Octavus Roy Cohen (David Carroll, Max Gold, Jim Hanvey, Eric Peters, Florian Slappey) and appeared in eight stories in The Saturday Evening Post from 1919 to 1926, beginning with “Poppy Passes” (The Saturday Evening Post, Feb. 15, 1919).

Chew Evans is a “slender, immaculate, light-brown attorney.” He is the “first and last resort of the city’s colored populace in time of legal stress.” He knows Florian Slappey and sometimes works with him. The Chew Evans stories are “humorous,” but Chew Evans is clever and not a figure of mockery.
