Webster, Ben. Ben Webster was created by Jay Jerome Williams (Phil Hardy) and appeared in Bound to Win (1926-1934) and Ben Webster’s Career (1934-1936).

Ben Webster is a clean-cut, blond, good kid, honest and decent, and he works hard to improve his lot in life. Unfortunately, he is continually faced with greedy bankers demanding rent and threatening to foreclose on the Webster house. Webster also keeps running into innocent young women and widows, all of them in need of help. All Webster has to help him is his mutt, Briar, and the occasional lost treasures he finds and the shipwrecks he is a part of.
