Wainwright Barth is a bald, egotistical, ex-banker who became New York City's deputy commissioner when Commissioner Weston went abroad to investigate an investment scandal. When Weston came back from his investigation, he resumed his commissioner duties. Afterward, Barth would only serve as a commissioner when Weston was on vacation or ill.
Barth was much more skeptical of the existence of The Shadow than Commissioner Weston. For him, any talk about the crime fighter was truly absurd.
During Barth's administration, Detective Joe Cardona was promoted to acting inspector.
