Overview

A killer is loose on campus! Amateur criminologist Professor Philip Yerkes has been found shot dead in his locked office at Chatham House, and the dread digit of suspicion is now pointing at two of Yerkes' own university colleagues, John Hardwick Bailey, one of the country's foremost Shakespeare scholars, and Thaddeus Davis, noted authority on English poetry. Can young Professor Ben Ingram, who discovered the dead man's body and is desperately in love with Professor Bailey's beautiful daughter Mary, exonerate his friends--when even he has reason to doubt their innocence?

What does neurotic youngster Leonard Crane know about the affair? Or smoothly handsome Guido Luciano? And just where is that odd janitor, Schultz? Can Professor Meade, the scandal-averse university president, keep those blundering police flatfoots at bay in the bloody groves of academe as Professor Bailey tries to find a satisfactory solution to the case?

For those who have wondered whether the pen is mightier than the gat, read on to the shocking conclusion of Death on the Campus and see.

A Jazz Age director of the Harvard University Band and the composer of "Harvard's Own March," Addison Simmons (1902-1972) wrote radio serials in the Thirties and Forties, working with, among others, the great Wyllis Cooper, creator of Lights Out and Quiet, Please.
