Whipple, Ben. Ben Whipple was created by William West Winter and appeared in a number of stories in Short Stories in 1930, beginning with “Horns of Death” (Short Stories, May 25, 1930).

Ben Whipple is a “land examiner” for the Forest Service, who takes orders from his friend, deputy supervisor Les Strange, to investigate strange occurrences in the forested regions of the American west. This inevitably leads to conflict with gangsters, but Whipple is tough and a good shot and takes care of the bad guys when he finds them.
