Race, Jack. Jack Race was created by Harry Hale and appeared in the five-book “Jack Race” series, beginning with Jack Race at Boarding School, or, The Leader of Merrivale Academy (1915) and concluding with Jack Race on the Ranch (1915).

Jack Race is a upstanding young teenager who begins doing good and bringing glory to his school and country at Merrivale Academy. Soon enough he moves on to winning the "Junior League Pennant" as a star running back, quarterback, and linebacker, and from there wins a cross-country car race, fights the Germans in World War One from his biplane, and wows the boys out West at a dude ranch.
