Windle, Mr. Mr. Windle was created by C.M. Rockwell (Blue Ghost (I)) and appeared in fifteen stories in Clues from 1928 to 1930, beginning with “Mr. Windle’s Swindle” (Clues, Sept 15, 1928).

Mr. Windle is a Con Man. Mr. Dalrymple Windle is a man of many parts, a genial, plump resident of the Hotel Aloha in Hawaii who likes to gamble at the race track. Unfortunately, he usually loses. But Mr. Windle is a talented swindler and flimflam man, so replenishing his depleted finances is usually just a matter of finding a gullible sucker, usually a businessman but sometimes Mussolini’s representatives.
