Biography: 

One of the hypothetical characters in this novel. This "undercover man," elsewhere usually called a "revenuer," does not actually appear in Jefferson, he is fairly vividly conjured up in the imagination of "the town," which is "just waiting" for Brown to get arrested by such an agent after "opening up his raincoat" and offering to sell him a jar of whiskey (46). It is illegal to sell alcohol in Yoknapatawpha both before and after Prohibition. At the time this novel takes place, Prohibition made it illegal to sell alcohol anywhere in the U.S.
