Quicksilver, Beau. Beau Quicksilver was created by Florence Mae Pettee (Dr. Nancy Dayland, Digby Gresham, George F. Hopper) and appeared in seven stories in Argosy-All Story Weekly in 1923, beginning with “A Tooth for a Tooth” (Argosy All-Story Weekly, Feb. 24, 1923).

Beau Quicksilver is a Fop. Quicksilver, "that damned dude dick," is a dandy and "an enigmatical crime chaser--a mercurial mystery man." Quicksilver is a short little man with two powerful fists, a brilliant mind for detecting, and a languid, affected attitude.
