Unknown pulp heroes, perhaps?

Here's a list I want everyone to look at very hard. They are names of some characters appearing in the Finnish pulp, Seikkailujen Maailma. I believe they are all from translated, American-origin stories. But the stories appeared with no author's names, so I'm at loss here. Can anyone help with these? The stories are hardboiled crime from the 1930's up to the fifties. I know this can be solved, since I already solved one such name: Mike Blair who also appeared in Seikkailujen Maailma without the author's name, but I know now that he was Hank Searls's hero.

Art Casey
Hap Collins [yeah, the same name Lansdale has!]
Matt Devon
Streak McShea
Pat Muldoon
Joe Portugal
Bulldog Ryan
Stevenson (detective for an airline)
Bill Thorne
Bart Trevor
Jeff Dixon
Sidney Gordon
