RARA-AVIS: RE:Question about private eyes

It occurs to me that the current practice of providing private eyes with background stories (continuing girlfriends, pals, dogs, cats, references to home life, chronological progression of series, etc.) may have begun with Roger L. Simon's Moses Wine series. "The Big Fix" came out in '73. Anybody think of any earlier examples?
