Hazel, Jim. Jim Hazel was created by “Lee Harrington,” the pseudonym of Reginald C. Barker (Grizzly Gallagher, “Cinnamon” Smith), and appeared in 178 stories in Wild West Weekly from 1927 to 1933, beginning with “The Ranger at Blue Mountain” (Wild West Weekly, Aug. 27, 1927). Jim Hazel is a United States Forest Ranger, operating in the “vast chain of national forests which reach from the foot of Mount McKinley almost to the Mexican border.” And Forest Rangers are instructed to enforce the law and when necessary bring peace to lawless stretches of forest. Hazel is among the best of these Rangers, even though he faces a variety of foes, native and Anglo, as well as wild animals and outré hunchbacked gang leaders.
