Garis (Tom Cardiff, Larry Dexter, Sherman Ford, Dick Hamilton, Amos Henderson, Professor Jephtha Jonkin, Moving Picture Boys, Mystery Boys (I), Nat Ridley, Rocket Riders, Smith Brothers, Don Sturdy, Tom Swift, Teddy (II), Venture Boys), and appeared in the seven-book Motion Picture Chums Series, beginning with The Motion Picture Chums' First Venture, or, Opening a Photo Playhouse in Fairlands (1913) and concluding with The Motion Picture Chums’ War Spectacle, or, The Film That Won the Prize (1916).
