Criddle, Baltimore. Baltimore Criddle was created by Harris Dickson and appeared in seven stories in The Saturday Evening Post from 1913 to 1921, beginning with “The Grand Organizer” (Saturday Evening Post, Jan 4, 1913).

Baltimore Criddle is a Con Man. He is an African-American swindler who cleverly separates other African-Americans (as stereotypically portrayed as Criddle) from their money. He does so by posing as the Reverend of the True Hope Lodge of Race Pride and accepting donations for various good works.
