Wennick, Pete. Pete Wennick was created by Erle Stanley Gardner (Black Barr, Major Copley Brane, Terry Clane, Bertha Cool, Ken Corning, Speed Dash, Jax Keen, Barney Killigen, Bob Larkin, Lester Leith, Señor Lobo, The Man in the Silver Mask, Perry Mason, Ed Migraine, Patent Leather Kid, Phantom Crook, Paul Pry (II), Doug Selby, White Rings, Gramps Wiggins, Bob Zane, Sidney Zoom) and appeared in three stories in Black Mask from 1937 to 1939, beginning with “Among Thieves” (Black Mask, Sept 1937).
Pete Wennick is a lawyer and investigator for his law firm. He doesn’t take the job particularly seriously, although he is good at it, and his boss is usually frustrated with him: “You’re supposed to be studying law. You’re supposed to make investigations. You’re a cross between a sublimated law clerk and a detective.” He likes women’s legs and notices them, often. His secretary Mae Devers is his suffering girlfriend.
