Pennyfeather, Mr. Mr. Pennyfeather was created by “D.B. Olsen,” the pseudonym of Dolores B. Hitchens (Rachel Murdock), and appeared in six novels from 1945 to 1952, beginning with Bring the Bride a Shroud.

Mr. Pennyfeather is a Professor of English, specializing in Chaucer. Somehow, six times in a row, he becomes involved in murder cases, forcing him to use his native wit and knowledge of human nature (gleaned from Chaucer and the Classics) to catch the murderer.
