Another version of the biography states...ALLAN, Luke, pseudonym of William Lacey Amy, born 9 Jun 1877 in Sydenham, Grey Co., Ontario, Canada; died in Pinellas Co., Florida in Nov 1962. He was a journalist and author who travelled extensively in many parts of the world. He chiefly used the pen name, Luke Allan. In 1921 he began a series for which he created a half-breed ex-cattle rustler, Blue Pete, who became an undercover agent for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The last of the series was published in 1950. Blue Pete: Half-Breed, the first of the series, begins in the Cypress Hills near Medicine Hat, Alberta, with a confrontation between Constable Mahon of the Mounted Police and Blue Pete, fleeing for safety to Canada. He becomes the Mountie's friend.
