Gillan, Rusty. Rusty Gillan was created by Sewell Ford and appeared in thirteen stories in Saturday Evening Post from 1924 to 1927, beginning with “As Per Rusty Gillan” (Saturday Evening Post, May 3, 1924).

Rusty Gillan is a professional driver, “an unimposing little shrimp…with a broken nose, a cast in one eye, and a crooked mouth.” But Gillan is a good driver and is better with women and dice and is even good in a fight, all of which skills are useful in helping his employer, the well-to-do Mr. Buell, in their wanderings around the United States and Canada. They encounter brutal thugs, sweet young women, gold-digging vamps, and high society types, among other threats.
