BIOGRAPHY: Knight (Clifford) Papers
http://www.oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/kt5s2006rw/bioghist/345722010
Knight was born on December 7, 1886 in Fulton, Kansas; attended Washburn College and University of Michigan; assistant professor, Signal Corps Officers Training School, Yale University, 1918-19; subeditor, Kansas City Star, 1920-29; contributed fiction and short stories to several magazines, including Collier's and Argosy; wrote mystery novels, including Tommy of the Voices (1918), The Affair of the Scarlet Crab (1937), The Affair of the Heavenly Voice (1937), and The Affair of the Ginger Lei (1938).

Clifford Knight
Knight's "The Affair at the Circle T" (1946) has the sort of detailed Background common in his fiction, in this case, of a Nevada dude ranch. Most of his books' backgrounds are locations out West, or in the Pacific. The solution to the mystery, discovered by his series detective Professor Huntoon Rogers, turns on science. There is also a routine investigation of alibis in the tale. All in all, it shows signs of the Realist tradition.
 
Huntoon Rogers first appeared in The Affair of the Scarlet Crab (1937), a book set against a Background of a scientific expedition to the Galapagos Islands. Many of the characters in the book are University professors; University settings are frequent among Realist school writers. So are boats and shipping. Puzzle plot elements are skimpy in this not very inspired mystery; the best ideas involve the second murder, and follow Realist school traditions of alibis and the "breakdown of identity". The storytelling is also grim and depressing, and the book is not recommended. This book does not seem like a pure example of the Realist school. It also shows signs of the Van Dine tradition. Rogers is a genius amateur detective; he is an English professor, not a scientist. And the characters seem like the sort of intelligentsia that often show up in Van Dine school books, although they are scientists, not the arts oriented scholars of Van Dine novels.
 
The Affair of the Scarlet Crab seems oddly anticipatory of Michelangelo Antonioni's film L'Avventura (1959 - 1960). This is discussed in the article on Antonioni.
 
After World War II, Knight abandoned Rogers to write about non-series detectives. Knight's Death of a Big Shot (1951) shows several similarities with Erle Stanley Gardner. The hero is a Rogue, who uses his skills to help an innocent working woman caught in a jam, like many Gardner heroes. The setting, a Southern California fruit ranch, recalls the agricultural communities of Gardner's Doug Selby books. Some of Knight's imagery also relates to the film noirs that were popular in his time. Hit men often showed up in films; Charles McGraw played them in Robert Siodmak's The Killers (1946) and Anthony Mann's T-Men (1947). Highway Patrol barricades, and searches for fugitives show up in both the prose of Karl W. Dexter, and in such films as Joseph H. Lewis' Gun Crazy (1949). One might also note that the opening chapters of Death of a Big Shot constitute a prototypical Road tale, several years before Beat writers made being On the Road (1957) fashionable in mainstream literature.
 
This does not mean that Knight's book is derivative. In fact, its opening chapters (1 - 5) are strikingly original. These sections are more thriller than mystery; they also contain a delicate love story, and lots of entertainment value. They are only marginally related to the mystery plot that follows, although Knight does return to their plot briefly with some interesting material at the end of Chapter 15. The later mystery sections of the novel disappoint. They also change the position of the hero in unpleasant ways. In the early sections, he is a powerful, clever rogue who does a lot to help the heroine. He, and the author, are also ingenious about both his hit man work, and his ways of aiding the heroine. In the later book, the world starts closing in on him, a much less fun thing to read about. One wishes Knight had stuck to his guns, and written a whole book about the protagonist in his opening pages.

OBITUARY: Mrs. W. S. Knight was found dead in her bed Monday morning at her home in Effingham, by her daughter, Mrs. L. Grant Hawk, wha had gone to her room to inquire how she was feeling. Mrs. Knight was taken sick just a week ago with a pain in her left arm and around heart, but din not consider her illness serious enough to call a physician. Each day she was able to come from her room upstairs to a downstairs room where she spent the day reclining on a lounge, feeling weak, but suffering no pain. The night of her death she seemed some stronger and when she was ready to go to her room suggested that she could carry her own lamp, and asked for a copy of a magazine in order that she might read for a while before going to sleep. Mrs. Hawk carried the lamp to her room for her and say that when she told her good night her mother seemed more cheerful than she had been for several days. When Mrs. Hawk called at the room the next morning about seven o'clock she found that life had been extinct but a short time From the position of the body it is thought that death came suddenly and without a struggle, and was no doubt caused by heart failure. Mrs. Knight had lived in Atchison county since 1868 and gad been a resident of Effingham since 1878, She was born at Lawton Station, New York, in October 1833 and her maiden name was Mary Etta Sherman.

In 1878 they moved to Effingham and engaged in the general merchandise business on the corner where H. Berkson is now engaged in the clothing business. in 1893 W. S. Knight retired from business and was succeeded by his son. W. W. Knight. W. S. Night died July 6, 1897 and since that time Mrs. Knight has made he home in their residence here, and of late years daughter, Mrs. Georgetta Hawk had been making her home with her. Mrs. Hawk is the only living child. W. E. Knight died a few years ago in New York, one son died in infancy and one at the age of one year. Two brothers are still living in New York. Mrs. Knight was an excellent woman and was highly esteemed by all who knew her, and the news of her death came as a great shock to Effingham people who knew her and loved her so well. The funeral was held from the residence Thursday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. Hl L. Saunders, of Oskaloosa, formerly pastor too the Presbyterian church at Effingham, and the burial was in the Evergreen cemetery.
