Jennison, Bat. Bat Jennison was created by George Marquis and appeared in forty-nine stories in a variety of magazines from 1925 to 1950, beginning with “Old Bat Jennison Plays His Hunch” (Short Stories, May 25, 1925).

Bat Jennison is a courageous, wandering cowpoke who is “incurably at heart a knight errant, as valiant and as unselfish as ever fared forth in quest of the Holy Grail. Those who knew him best would have ticked off on the fingers of one hand the battles in which he had been involved that did not have as their bases the troubles of someone beside himself.”
