Tecumseh Fox

Created by Rex Stout (1886-1975)

TECUMSEH FOX is a private eye who shows up in a few novels by Rex Stout. Unlike the rather noticable Nero Wolfe, Tecumseh is a rather normal-looking guy, except for his "penetrating" brown eyes and his rather dapper fashion sense. Tecumseh lives and works out of a large farm full of animals in New York's Westchester County. By the way, despite his name, Tecumseh denies that he is part-Native American.

Stout often claimed Tecumseh's first case, Double for Death (1939) was the best detective story he ever wrote. Stout also created a couple of other eyes: Dol Bonner was one of the first female eyes to appear in novel form, and he enjoyed some success with another character of his, Nero Wolfe, whom you may have heard of...


  • Double for Death (1939)
  • Bad for Business (1940)
  • The Broken Vase (1941)
