Pujol, Aristide. Aristide Pujol was created by W.J. Locke and appeared in ten stories in The Strand from 1910 to 1912, beginning with “The Adventure of the Fair Patronne” (The Strand, Dec. 1910); the stories were collected in The Joyous Adventures of Aristide Pujol (1912).

Aristide Pujol is an ebullient Frenchman: bright-eyed, olive-skinned, good-humored, and the bearer of a carefully groomed mustache and Van Dyke. He is talkative, joyful, and knowledgeable, and is the owner of a construction company. Also a gambler. And teacher of French in a girls school. And adventurer. Pujol seems to have held many jobs, and had even more adventures, which he relates with good-natured boastfulness and elan, than he has had jobs.
