Mortimer Bayliss, J.J. Bunyan's picture curator in Something Fishy. A tall,
thin, sardonic man who looks like a Mephistopheles with
ulcers. Supercilious manner, cackling laughter; member of
the Mausoleum Club. Famous art critic in A Pelican at Blandings, where he
has wrongly certified the authenticity of a forged nude
attributed to Claude Robichaux.
