Braxton, Colonel. Colonel Braxton was created by Melville Davisson Post (Monsieur Jonquelle, Henry Marquis, Randolph Mason, Uncle Abner, Colonel Walker) and appeared in sixteen stories in The American Magazine from 1926 to 1930, beginning with “The Forgotten Witness” (The American Magazine, Sept. 1926); the stories were collected in The Silent Witness (1930).

Colonel Braxton is a formidable defense lawyer somewhere in Virginia. He is “big” and “placid” and chews his “inevitable” cigar in court, and never loses a case or fails to prove that his client is innocent of all charges laid against him.
