Wimple, Tadbury. Tadbury Wimple was created by Burke Jenkins and appeared in four stories in The Cavalier in 1910, beginning with “Wimple’s Fog-Piercer” (The Cavalier, June 1910).

Tadbury Wimple is an Unlucky Inventor. His creations, like the “fog-piercer” (a scope which can see through fog) and the “food-producer” (a fast-growing mango), never quite bring him either aesthetic or financial success.
