Q
What is Inspector Lewis Erskine's marital status?
A
Widower.
Q
Who created "The F.B.I." series?
A
There is no creator credit. Norman Jolley wrote the first episode, "The Monster," in which we're told about Erskine being a widower and how his wife died. Charles Larson wrote the fourth episode, in which more background about Erskine is revealed, including the fact he got married at a young age. Barbara Erskine observes at 19 she is older than her father was when he got married. Larson also was the first-season producer and Jolley was the first-season associate producer, so presumably they had a lot of input.
Q
What does an F.B.I inspector inspect?
A
"Field offices," Erskine says in the first episode in response to a question. In the show, we're told Erskine is the agency's top investigator. He is assigned cases directly by Assistant Director Arthur Ward. Erskine works across the United States, along with a partner.
