Bryant. Bryant was created by Roger Torrey (Johnny Carr, Johnny Cass, Shean Connell, Sam Drake, Mickey Hanigan, George Killeen, Pat McCarthy, Mike O’Dell, Dal Prentice, John Ryan) and appeared in four stories in Black Mask from 1940 to 1942, beginning with “Murder - For No Reason” (Black Mask, Aug. 1940).

Bryant is an Army soldier who is the “director of physical education” at a Civilian Conservation Corps camp in the American South. He is in charge of the boys and teenagers in his charge, and when they are threatened, or when he discovers other crimes, he becomes a “one man crime prevention bureau.”
