Steele, Philip. Philip Steele was created by James Oliver Curwood (Jim Falkner, Kazan, Mad Scientist (I)) and appeared in twelve short stories in Red Book Magazine in 1910 and 1911, beginning with “From Out of the Blizzard,” (Red Book Magazine, Sept. 1910); the stories were collected in Steele of the Royal Mounted (1911).

Philip Steele is a handsome officer in the Royal Northwest Mounted Police and works “three hundred miles into the wilderness” of western Canada. He is the son of a multi-millionaire banker, formerly the beau ideal, but he had his heart broken, and he became a “millionaire and gentleman adventurer,” surveying in Central America, and so on. He finally enlisted in the Mounted Police and found it appealing.
