Arthur "Nip" Dolton was a member of the Redrum Gang 1926. He became "czar" of the slot machine racket in 1936.

In 1937, Dolton was shot and killed as part of the revenge plot by his old boss Frank Redrum aka The Blank. Dolton's body was placed in the trunk of his car which was then set to be struck by a train. His remains were found by Dick Tracy, along with the first real clue to the Blank's identity.


  • Dolton was killed "off-camera" and did not appear in the strip except as a corpse.
  • A later Rogues' Gallery feature misspelled Nip's last name as "Dalton".
