In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jan 7, 2014

Leonidas Witherall, as created by Alice Tilton, looked just like William Shakespeare. 

He ran a private school for boys and wrote detective novels on the side.  He was also an amateur detective himself. 

His stories were confusing but fun, and Miss Tilton's books sold well from the late 1930s through World War II. 

In 1944, the Mutual Network turned them into a radio series. 

This episode, The Case of the Vanishing Housekeeper, is from July 23, 1944.
