Seattle, John. John Seattle was created by Charles Alexander (Indian Johnny) and appeared in seventeen stories in Detective Fiction Weekly and Ace-High Detective from 1933 to 1939, beginning with “Death Song” (Detective Fiction Weekly, Apr 8 1933).
“Indian John” Seattle is a Sheriff in the Black Hills mining town of Black Creek. He spent his boyhood with the Nez Perce, which is how he gained his nickname. As an adult Seattle “was an instinctive and Indian-trained hunter; criminals were his prey.” Seattle is “a bandy-legged figure in worn moleskins, wearing a time-honored Stetson.” He is assisted by his deputy sheriff, Hal Minto.
