Description

Professor Craig Kennedy is a scientific detective similar to Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Thorndyke, using his knowledge of chemistry and psychoanalysis to solve mysteries; exotic devices such as lie detectors, gyroscopes, and portable seismographs are his stock in trade.

Professor Craig Kennedy is a character created by Arthur B. Reeve.

Kennedy is a scientific detective at Columbia University similar to Sherlock Holmes and Dr Thorndyke. He uses his knowledge of chemistry and psychoanalysis to solve cases, and uses exotic (at the time) devices in his work such as lie detectors, gyroscopes, and portable seismographs. Craig Kennedy became the prototype for American scientific detectives and their adventures, influencing the creation of later characters such as Doc Savage and Batman.

He first appeared in the December, 1910 issue of Cosmopolitan, in "The Case of Helen Bond, " and then came back for many short stories in magazines as various as The Popular Magazine and World Man Hunters, as well as in 26 novels. Through the 1920s, he became more of a typical detective. Craig Kennedy appeared in a number of 1930s pulp magazines, Complete Detective Novel Magazine, Dime Detective, Popular Detective, Weird Tales, and others, but many of these appear to be ghost-written as they lack the style and flavor of the teen-era Craig Kennedy stories. A series of six Craig Kennedy stories in early issues Popular Detective are known to have been ghost-written by A. T. Locke.

There is a 1952 TV series called Craig Kennedy, Criminologist, which was based on the same character. Donald Woods portrayed Craig Kennedy in the series.

About the Author:

Arthur Benjamin Reeve (October 15, 1880 - August 9, 1936) was an American mystery writer. He is best known for creating the series character Professor Craig Kennedy, sometimes called "The American Sherlock Holmes, " and his Dr Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson, a newspaper reporter, in eighteen detective novels. The bulk of Reeve's fame is based on the 82 Craig Kennedy stories, published in Cosmopolitan magazine between 1910 and 1918. These were collected in book form; with the third collection, the short stories were stitched together into pseudo-novels. The 12-volume Craig Kennedy Stories came out in 1918; it reissued Reeve's books-to-date as a matched set.
