Gard, Billy. Billy Gard was created by William Atherton Dupuy and appeared in twelve stories which were collected in Uncle Sam, Detective (1916).

Billy Gard is a special agent for the Department of Justice, well-trained in all the most modern crime-solving practices. He is a nondescript and inconspicuous-looking thirty-something, although he is slim and athletic, and is of course clever and brave. He takes on murderous Cumberland moonshiners, bank robbers, gun-smugglers to Nicaragua, and Yellow Peril Chinese opium dealers.
