Strong, Philip. Philip Strong was created by William Oursler and appeared in The Trial of Vincent Doon (1941) and The Folio on Florence White (1942).

Philip Strong is a defense attorney in New York City. In the words of his assistant, James Matthews,

Little about Strong suggests the average defense attorney. His personality is utterly untheatrical. Reticent, soft-spoken, with brownish hair, graying at the edges–and receding at the temples–he rather reminds one of a tall, gangling scholar. Only if you looked behind those rimless glasses into the somber eyes, probing and depthless, could you find a hint of the power, of the rooted sense of justice, of the reservoir of pity he has for all fellow mortals, even enemies.
