Kent, Blackstone. Blackstone Kent was created by "Ralph Milne Farley," the pseudonym of Roger Sherman Hoar (Radio Man, Don Warren), and appeared in four stories and story serials in 1930, beginning with "The Flashlight Brigade" (Amazing Detective Tales, June, 1930).

Blackstone Kent is a Scientific Detective. He is a lawyer, but somehow his law practice never slows him down while he is on the trail of a criminal. In addition to his knowledge of the law he is very canny about science, although what he knows are ordinary, "real" things like paraffin being used to disguise a person’s looks. Kent appears once in the Radio Man series, helping his daughter and the Radio Man to stop an alien invasion.
