All I know about the author, Curtis Tarring Gardner, is that he was born in Maryland in 1898, graduated from MIT; and lived in Tice, Florida at some point in his life. He also sold plenty of stories to the crime and detective pulps, mostly G-Men, Five-Novels and Thrilling Detective, and that his most popular series character was Bill “Baron Munchausen” Tolliver, an investigator for Imperial Casualty.
The hunt continues…
