Smith, Percy. Percy Smith was created by Robert W. Chambers (Cardigan, Rue Carew, Francis Gilland, Green Mouse Society, Westrel Keen, William Manners, Special Messenger) and appeared in six stories which were collected in Police!!! (1915).

Percy Smith works for the Bronx Park Zoological Society and is hired to investigate strange reports of faraway places and bring back any particularly good finds from those place. Smith often finds himself distracted by pretty women and bossed around by academic harpies. So Smith might go into the Everglades and find a three-eyed man, or a cavewoman in the Florida hills, or enormous minnows, or mile-long salamanders, but horrible women are everywhere and make life difficult for him.
