Chong, Charlie. Charlie Chong was created by James Perley Hughes and appeared in four stories in Argosy All-Story Weekly in 1925 and 1926, beginning with “Charlie Chong, A.M.” (Argosy All-Story Weekly, July 4, 1925).
Charlie Chong is the Chinese-American “editor, advertising manager and general factotum of the Chung Mei Bo, Chinatown’s most progressive newspaper.” He is a clever, skinny man, entirely un-stereotypical, who does things like starting and managing Chinatown’s first beauty contest as a charity contest for Chinatown’s new hospital. He is aided in his schemes by the lovely Tze Chan, Chong’s girlfriend and the daughter of the newspaper’s publisher.
