Vidaut. Vidaut was created by James Francis Dwyer (Jack Cameron, Hoosier Hawk, Red O’Neill, Texan Wasp) and appeared in four stories in The New Magazine in 1910 and 1911, beginning with “The Edgecombe Avenue Mystery” (The New Magazine, Oct. 1910).

Vidaut is a Great Detective. Although he is a small, bouncy, talkative man, Vidaut is very much in the mode of Sherlock Holmes, being scornful of the police and assured of his own intelligence. He has shoe button eyes and the voice of “a master, a born commander, one to whom obedience is but the inevitable effect of his expressed desires.”
