Ross, Superintendent. Superintendent Ross was created by “John Jervis Connington,” the pseudonym of Alfred Walter Stewart (The Counsellor, Sir Clinton Driffield), and appeared in Eye in the Museum (1929) and Two Tickets Puzzle (1930).

Superintendent Ross is an investigator for Scotland Yard. He is methodical, but believes that the only reliable evidence is that which he collects himself: everything else “suffered a process of clipping and trimming as it passed from mind to mind,” which is why he doesn’t trust even witnesses unless he is the one to handle them.
