Dr. John Ardow was an orthopedist in Dick Tracy's city. He had short dark hair and wore eyeglasses.

Ardow and his nurse were approached by the fugitive known as "Big Brass" when Big Brass was suffering from a severe ailment in his back. Ardow treated Brass, but Ardow's nurse recognized Brass as a wanted criminal. She called the police, who arrived at Ardow's office shortly thereafter.

When Big Brass discovered that the building was surrounded, he shot Ardow in the arm (6/30/1974) and took the nurse hostage. Brass was killed by police and the nurse escaped without injury. Later, Dr. Ardow expressed little sympathy for Big Brass.
