A Chronology of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The Sherlock Holmes Society of London Journal - Vol 29 - No.2 - Summer 2009
"Nine years ago, Brian Pugh, Curator of the Conan Doyle (Browborough) Establishment, self-published a useful list of the dates in Arthur Conan Doyle’s life. The latest, professionally published version runs to more than 200 A4 pages, and includes twelve pages of significant dates between Conan Doyle’s death in 1930 and the memorial service for his daughter Dame Jean in 1998, as well as lists of his residences, of his family’s burial sites, and of relevant plaques and statues, and a chronological list of his writings. It’s not a book to read from cover to cover, but for many of us it will quickly become and essential part of our reference libraries. (I can add just one event on the Chronology. On 22nd May 1994, as well as the plaque at 2 Upper Wimpole Street, Dame Jean unveiled Jean Upton’s portrait of Sir Arthur at the Sherlock Holmes pub in London)".
