Jerry Marr

Created by Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970)

Yet another of Gardner's countless pulp heroes, private eye JERRY MARR only made one appearance, as far as I can tell, in the December 9, 1939 issue of Detective Fiction Weekly. He may be worth checking out, though, because in a Gardner collection in which the story is included, an introduction suggestsbut according tohe's noted as "there is a tough-mindedness in his approach and brilliance in his deduction that suggest a step in the evolution of Perry Mason."
