Steer, Larry. Larry Steer was created by Louis Douthwaite (Jimmy Warden) and appeared in fourteen stories which were collected in Corporal of the Mounted (1939).

Larry Steer is a Corporal “in charge of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment at Tamrack, Yukon territory.” He has formed a “queer but lasting friendship” with “Louis Pierre Lefevre, the squat-framed, bright-eyed French Canadian trapper.” Together they solve murders, catch thieves, calm troubled Ojibway, kill the Windigo (or a man costumed to look like one), discover the cause of a cabin that kills its inhabitants, and have other Mountie-type adventures.
