Benjamin Abramson

Ben Abramson was born August 24, 1898 in Kadenei, Lithuania. The American Book Collector noted that he “came from a large, old-world, orthodox Lithuanian family that emigrated to this country when he was but a few years old [1901]…[to] the teeming, crowded westside of Chicago at the turn of the century; from a childhood of desperation and need, through a youth of formal education that ended when he was 11.” He was an avid reader, however, learning bookselling at Economy Books and McClurg’s Bookstore, and opening his own Argus Book Shop in 1923, selling new and used books in what Vincent Starrett called “a sort of tavern for his friends.” He and The Argus attracted booklovers and writers such as Starrett, Somerset Maugham, Christopher Morley, John Steinbeck, and Ben Hecht, to name some of the better known.  He published his own periodical Reading and Collecting beginning in 1936, and also Christopher Morley’s Old Loopy: A Love Letter for Chicago, Vincent Starrett’s Books and Bipeds, and Jay Finley Christ’s Irregular Guide to Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street.

He moved to New York later that year and in 1946 began publishing The Baker Street Journal, edited by Edgar W. Smith. After the 13 issues now known as the “Original Series,” he was forced to discontinue the financially ruinous project. That year, 1949, he moved to Mohegan Lake NY, and was invested as “The Beryl Coronet” in The Baker Street Irregulars. He returned to Chicago in 1953 and reopened his Argus Book Shop there. In 1955 he and Starrett published William Gillette’s playlet The Painful Predicament of Sherlock Holmes. Abramson died July 16th, 1955 in Chicago, and his ashes were scattered on the steps of The Newberry Library.

Constantine “Dino” Argyropoulos

Dino Argyropoulos bought his first book, with his allowance, from his School Book Fair, in 1955. It was a copy of the Whitman Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, illustrated by Cheslie D’Andrea. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Though he didn’t get involved with Sherlockian folk until late in life, he’d been hooked since he was ten years old.

Dino is a retired Chicago Public Schools Teacher-Librarian. His love of books, music and pipes, consumes his time and wallet. His membership in the Chicagoland Pipe Collectors Club sparked a conversation with fellow member Al Shaw. Al immediately recognized Dino’s deep interest in things Sherlockian, and invited him to join Hugo’s Companions. That was the beginning of another beautiful friendship.

Dino now serves as the Most Drunken Companion (Secretary) of Hugo’s, and has been awarded the “Horace Harker Award” for his work on The Grimpen Mire Gazette, the scion’s publication. His wife, Linda, has been honored as the Companions’ 2017 “Yeoman’s Daughter.”  Included in the Hounds “Pack” in 2017, Dino is also a member of The Torists, The Criterion Bar, and the Sherlockian Brunch Club.  By the way, only the “authorities” call him Constantine. He’s Dino to all his friends.

George Armstrong

George Douglas Armstrong, Jr. was born May 26, 1927 in Evanston IL.  Armstrong was an Anglophile from an early age, having been introduced “to the glamour of ‘the empire’ under Queen Victoria – including our friends at 221B Baker Street” by his English father. He painted  “intricate drawings of the soldiers – especially the Scottish Highland regiments. At age 12 he begged to be allowed to play the bagpipes and this changed his life – leading him on to one of his most productive arenas in adulthood as a performer and musicologist.” (Rebecca Armstrong)

He served in the U.S. Army 1945-47.  Armstrong was a freelance artist and illustrator, specializing in maps and historically accurate illustrations of Native American Indians for educational publishers and Encyclopedia Britannica. He was also a folk singer and hosted “The Wandering Folksong” show on WFMT in the late 70s.” The U of Chicago Regenstein Library holds a set of approximately 250 taped programs from the program. “He traditionally opened the annual University of Chicago Folk Festival with a bagpipe solo.” (Chicago Tribune) With his wife Gerry they recorded four albums on the Folkway and Folk Legacy labels.  Studs Terkel, his longtime friend, called him “one of the unsung musicologists of our time.” He belonged to Hugo’s Companions and served as their Drunken Piper and Most Bold Companion, and often entertained the Companions and the Hounds by playing the bagpipes and singing, sometimes accompanied by his wife. His BSJ obituary stated “He drew the Hounds and Companion letterhead, showing a fearsome hound and Sir Hugo and his wicked companions.” He shared his love of Sherlock Holmes with his two daughters, often reading the Canon to them. His daughter Rebecca remembers him reading The Hound of the Baskervilles aloud and ending one session with the immortal line “Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!” garnering shrieks from his appreciative daughters, and wearing his Inverness cape and deerstalker cap to meetings of the Hounds. He received the investiture of Wiggins from the Baker Street Irregulars in 1984 and later agreed to a new investiture of John O’Groats. Armstrong died July 5, 1993 in Wilmette, IL.

Phil Bergem

Phillip Bergem has been an avid reader from an early age, although attempts in his youth to introduce him to the Sherlock Holmes tales were unsuccessful as his literary tastes at the time went in a different direction. During his High School years his family lived in northeast England. Although this was before his interest in Sherlock Holmes, he did develop a collecting mania for several science fiction authors, and became familiar with English customs, geography (especially that of London) and British English, all of which have helped in later years with Sherlockain studies. His fascination with the Canon and the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle began in the late 1980s with the Granada series. He joined the Norwegian Explorers of Minnesota in 1989 and his activity gradually changed from an interest, to a passion and eventually to an obsession. His particular interests are The Strand Magazine, Beeton’s Christmas Annuals, and the writings and life of Arthur Conan Doyle. He has worked on several books for the Norwegian Explorers, has lately contributed to several volumes of the Baker Street Irregulars Manuscript Series and is currently editor of the Norwegian Explorers’ newsletter, Explorations. He was invested in The Baker Street Irregulars as Birdy Edwards in 2012 and was made a Hound in 2017.

By 1933, Bridges was involved in protesting German treatment of Jews, asking clergy to discuss the situation with their members. He toured the Midwest delivering speeches connected with an anti-Nazi campaign and boycott of German goods.  During that same period, Clarence Darrow debated Bridges over “the issue of human freedom and responsibility in crime and punishment.” (Darrow would go on to join the Chicago Ethical Society). He was the author of a number of books such as The Ethical Movement, Its Principles and Aims (London, Union of Ethical Societies, 1911); Criticisms of Life; Studies in Faith, Hope and Despair (1915); Some Outlines of the Religion of Experience; a Book for Laymen and the Unchurched, (1916); Our Fellow Shakespeare, How Everyman May Enjoy His Works (1916); On Becoming an American: Some Meditations of a Newly Naturalized Immigrant (1919); and Aspects of Ethical Religion; Essays in Honor of Felix Adler on the Fiftieth Anniversary of His Founding of the Ethical Movement, 1876 (1926).

Jeremiah J. Buckley

Jeremiah Joseph Buckley was born in Blarney Ireland on Dec. 7, 1895 and arrived in the United States in 1907. According to his World War I draft card, he worked at an electrical substation at the time. He attended DePaul University as a law student, graduating in 1923. The following year he began a full-time position teaching in the English Department and a part-time position teaching in the Law School while working as an attorney. His specialty was evidence and criminal law. He was often noted in local newspapers as a sponsor of those newly admitted to the Bar. In 1953-54 he served on the Illinois State Bar Association. Daniel Ursini of DePaul’s Rinn Law Library, noted that Buckley was often referred to as “the Sage of DePaul” and “could not do enough for the law school” including writing “book reviews for the law review.” Ursini wrote “There is only one person shown in the photographic portraits lining the hallway to the Rare Book Room who was not a dean. That same person was never a full-time professor in the College of Law. Rather, he was a part-timer from 1924 to 1965. Yet throughout his forty-one years at DePaul his gifts as a lecturer, his capacity for human connection, and his exceptional agility as a thinker made Jeremiah Buckley synonymous with the high quality of legal education offered at DePaul.” Vincent Starrett must have agreed with that assessment of Buckley’s “agility as a thinker” and mentioned him in his “Books Alive” column on a number of subjects.  He wrote on Feb. 3, 1957 that Buckley was “an old friend”  and his April 19, 1953 column referred to him as a “well-known lecturer on law and criminology” as well as someone who “occasionally lectures on Shakespeare.” Starrett wrote that Buckley’s “most provocative address” was titled “Shakespeare: Was He an Irishman?” Buckley later asserted that the true author of the works attributed to Shakespeare was “an Irishman, Capt. MacMorris.” He also addressed a number of audiences on places to visit in Ireland. He was a frequent contributor to the editorial page of the Chicago Tribune including his statement in 1960 that he had “14 reasons why [Nixon] should not be elected president.” Other letters indicate his interest in the national political scene. He retired from DePaul in 1965 and “over 300 judges and lawyers and local power figures attended his farewell reception.”(Ursini)  Buckley died on August 1975 in Chicago IL.

Jay Finley Christ

Jay Finley Christ, a very early Hound, was born in Peabody, Ks. on December 15, 1884. He was a telegrapher with the Illinois Central Railroad for sixteen years before graduating from Morningside College (Sioux City, Ia.) in 1918. He received a J.D. from the University of Chicago in 1920, and became a business law professor in its School of Commerce & Administration.  During World War II, on leave from his teaching position, Christ acted as Chief Code Instructor at the Navy’s recording laboratory located not far from the campus. In the spring of 1944 he read Edgar W. Smith’s Profile by Gaslight, and wrote an essay reacting to Anthony Boucher’s “Was the Later Holmes an Impostor?” that he sent to an impressed Smith. In July, when Vincent Starrett mentioned The Hounds’ founding in his Chicago Tribune  “Books Alive” column, Christ wrote to him enclosing the essay, and was declared a Hound himself. He then designed our first membership certificate. Beginning in 1945 he began contributing Sherlockian items to Hounds co-founder Charles Collins’ “Line o’Type or Two” column in the Trib (sometimes as “J. A. Finch” or “Langdale Pike”), and by 1948 issued three collections of them from his own Fanlight House press, Gleanings by Gaslight, Flashes by Fanlight, and Soundings in the Saga. In 1947 Christ cemented his reputation nationally as an outstanding Sherlockian scholar with his Irregular Guide to Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street, his Irregular Chronology of Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street, and his four-letter code for the Sherlock Holmes stories now long standard among students of the Canon. That year he also taught the first college course anywhere on Sherlock Holmes. In 1949 he became “The Final Problem” in The Baker Street Irregulars, and in 1950 retired from teaching to Michigan City, Ind., on the lakeshore close to Chicago. There he built a writing cabin at his home, and spent the next thirteen years contributing more Writings About the Writings until his death at age 78 on December 10, 1963. At the BSI annual dinner the following month he was given a posthumous Two-Shilling Award.

Ed Christenson

Ed Christenson was born on June 4, 1943 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, oddly enough in the same year Vincent Starrett started The Hounds of the Baskervilles (sic). I was raised in Door County and graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 1961, then attended UW-Oshkosh earning a degree in Marketing. I worked mainly in the wholesale liquor business in Wisconsin and North Dakota, the last 30 years as Operations Manager for General Beverage in Oshkosh. I started attending Bob Hahn’s group in Sheboygan (The Merripit House Guests) in 1984. Bob was my main mentor in all things Sherlockian. He introduced me to the Sherlockian scene in Chicago and later in New York. I started to attend several groups in Chicago including The Hounds of the Baskervilles (sic), Hugo’s Companions, The Criterion Bar Association, Torists Intl., and The STUD Society the to name a few and was active in all these groups starting in the early 1990’s. Bob Hahn was very generous with his introductions to so many important Sherlockians around the country. On his passing in 1999, I succeeded him as head of The Merripit House Guests. I continued attending meetings in Chicago with Paul Smedegaard and stayed with Paul and his wife Margaret many times at their house in Racine which made the Oshkosh to Chicago trip more manageable. Paul continued my mentoring process in Chicago, New York and other places. We were able to attend Sherlockian meetings, weekends, and conferences all around the United States and Canada. It has been great making so many friendships with Sherlockians from so many countries. I was able to work with four Sherlockians on a project to revise and greatly expand Svend Petersen’s ‘A Sherlock Holmes Almanac’ which we published in 2003. The Baker Street Irregulars awarded me a shilling and investiture of “Antonio” in 2003. Since retiring, I have been allowed time to give several ‘talks’ on Sherlock Holmes to school classes, library groups and book clubs. What a long strange trip it has been.

Richard W. Clarke

Richard Warner Clarke was born Christmas Day, 1896, in Utica, N.Y., and made his career in New York City as an investment banker and stockbroker. In 1935 he was chief founder of The Five Orange Pips, a Holmes club unrelated to the BSI for the first ten years of its life, and later called by Christopher Morley “Sherlockiana’s Institute of Higher Studies.” He attended Amherst College and in World War I he served as a junior Naval officer; in 1942 he was recalled to active duty and assigned to the Naval Midshipmen’s School at Northwestern University’s downtown-Chicago campus. Edgar W. Smith, a Pip since 1938 before he became the BSI’s Buttons in 1940, gave him a letter of introduction to Vincent Starrett in late 1943, asking for what “might be forthcoming as to the constructive and illuminating results that will, I know, follow your discussions.” Clarke attended the Hounds’ January 7, 1944 annual dinner at Schlogl’s Restaurant (eleven present), and Starrett reported to Smith on January 16th that: “Your good Clarke made us a charming little address concerned with the various ships mentioned in the Sacred Writings, and reached some interesting conclusions, which I regret to say I was in no condition to remember with any exactness; I hope you will get him to write them out for the Archives.” (Which Clarke did, in the April 1946 Baker Street Journal as “On the Nomenclature of Watson’s Ships.”) “On behalf of the Five Orange Pips,” continued Starrett, “he also underwrote a number of rounds of drinks.” On the strength of these signal contributions Richard Clarke was made a Hound. He returned to New York at the end of the war, became “The Copper Beeches,” BSI in 1949, received the BSI’s 2 Shilling Award in 1978 and continued to direct The Five Orange Pips’ affairs until his death on January 14, 1980 in Westchester, NY.

Charles Collins

Charles William Collins was born in Madison IN on November 19, 1880 and moved to Chicago at the age of four. He graduated from the University of Chicago and joined the Chicago Record-Herald in 1903.  In 1908 he became a drama critic for the Chicago Inter Ocean and from 1914-1925 held that same position at the Chicago Evening Post in the same capacity.  While there, in 1923 he took the assignment of discovering what had happened to the “Sitting Lincoln” statue.  Designed by Stanford White, cast in 1906 and exhibited at the 1915 San Francisco World’s Fair, the statue of Abraham Lincoln was found by Collins in a stable in Chicago’s Washington Park.  His discovery led to the installation of the statue in Grant Park in 1926. Collins spent five years as a free-lance writer and in 1930 went to work as a drama critic for the Tribune. From 1938-1952 he served as editor of the Tribune’s “A Line O’ Type or Two” which carried over 300 Sherlockian tidbits and mentions of the Hounds.  In the early 1940s he began the “Bookman’s Holiday” column which he followed with writing for the Tribune’s Sunday magazine section from 1951 until his death in 1964. Collins also served on the board of the Illinois State Historical Society in the 1950s.  John Nieminski wrote in the 1983 History of the Hounds, Vincent Starrett may have been “wangled by berth” to the Tribune by Collins, who actually may have motivated Starrett to organize the Hounds.” Vol. 1 #2 of the Baker Street Journal carried notice of the Hounds; although Starrett was the only officer, “Most of the actual work of the organization, however, is done by Mr. Collins, whose daily column serves as a sort of clearing-house for Sherlockian notes and queries, including all vital information about the exploits of the local chapter.” Collins died March 3, 1964 in Chicago IL.

Irving Cutter

Dr. Irving Samuel Cutter was born December 5, 1875 in Keene, NH. After a brief role as a high school instructor, he graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1898 and served as principal of Beatrice High School (NE) until 1900.  He received his medical degree from the University of Nebraska in 1910 and remained at the school as instructor of physiological chemistry 1919-1913, Professor of Biochemistry and director of laboratories 1913-1915, and Dean of the College of Medicine 1915-1925 while also serving as editor of the Nebraska State Medical Journal and member of the editorial board of Annals of Medical History. In 1925 he was appointed dean of Northwestern University’s medical school and in 1928, medical director of Passavant Memorial Hospital.  The Galter Health Science Library records that he helped Northwestern build a great collection on the history of medicine: “Dean Cutter saw the Medical Library as his personal project…[expanding] its holdings from 13,000 to nearly 92,000 volumes…Dean Cutter was a noted rare book collector in private life…”  Additionally, he contributed to several Chicago newspapers and was named the Tribune health editor in June 1934 with a column titled “How to Keep Well.” His columns focused on medical advice for the layman. His columns were eventually collected in three books. Cutter was among the “dozen enthusiasts” present at the first meeting of the Hounds in January 1944. (Baker Street Journal) Dr. Cutter died on Feb. 2, 1945.   Hounds co-founder Charles Collins noted Cutter’s death in his “A Line O’ Type or Two” column, titling the tribute “The Good Neighbor.” As Ray Betzner wrote in his Studies in Starrett site, “Dr. Irving S. Cutter was an early member of The Hounds, a newspaper colleague of Vincent Starrett’s and a dedicated bibliophile. With his abilities as an excellent writer and passion for books, it is clear the Sherlock Holmes world lost a great potential contributor with his untimely death.”

Elmer Davis

Elmer Holmes Davis was born January 13, 1890 in Aurora IN. He began his career in journalism in high school, continuing at Franklin College where he edited the newspaper and sold stories to the Indianapolis Star. He earned a B.A. in 1910 and won a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford, where he met Christopher Morley and finished a B.A. in 1912, returning home in 1913. Davis turned down a job at Swine World in favor of the New York Times where he spent over ten years while writing his own stories and essays. He left the Times in 1923 for free-lance writing, focusing on domestic issues before turning toward foreign affairs. In 1939, as war broke out in Europe, he joined CBS News. His ability to summarize the news was so valuable that Edward R. Murrow claimed “no one else could explain the why of the news in such brief compass.” Davis toured England with Murrow in early 1941, airing broadcasts helping rally support for Britain which angered the America First group. In June 1942 President Roosevelt named him Director of the Office of War Information, where Davis took the stance that people had the right to know what was happening, a position often difficult while battling wartime censorship.  He worked for ABC over 1945–53, a period when he saw and condemned Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s and the House Un-American Activities Committee’s attack on civil liberties. Davis, a member of Christopher Morley’s Three Hours for Lunch Club, received the investiture “A Case of Identity” from The Baker Street Irregulars in 1949.  He wrote its Constitution and Buy-Laws as well the review of Vincent Starrett’s Private Life of Sherlock Holmes that Morley commissioned for The Saturday Review of Literature. His daughter Carolyn was “The Woman” for the 1947 BSI dinner. In 1952 Edgar W. Smith chose him to write the introduction to the Limited Editions Club edition of The Return of Sherlock Holmes.  He was a Peabody and Alfred I. duPont Award and Emmy winner, and the recipient of honors from foreign governments. He portrayed himself in 1951’s The Day the Earth Stood Still. Davis died May 18, 1958.

Carlina de la Cova

Carlina de la Cova received her Ph.D. from Indiana University in 2008. She is currently an Associate Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Anthropology at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Carlina is also a deputy coroner with the Richland County Coroner’s Office. She first met Sherlock Holmes in grade school through Peter Cushing’s and Jeremy Brett’s screen and television portrayals of the great detective. However, her formal introduction to the Master came in her sixth grade English class when she was assigned “The Speckled Band” to read. Carlina was instantly captivated by Holmes’s intellect and his ability to draw inferences and deductions from the tiniest of details. The detective became a steadfast companion throughout high school, college (where she wrote a number of biographical papers on him), and graduate school, where she began to employ his methods in her work.

Sherlock Holmes continues to play a very large role in Carlina’s academic and private life. Apart from publishing on the Master, she teaches an introductory forensics course at the University of South Carolina entitled: ANTH 221 The Forensics of Sherlock Holmes. As a professor, a bioarchaeologist, and a forensic anthropologist Carlina uses Holmes’ methods on a daily basis. His belief system has permeated her own, especially in regard to justice. As she states in her About Being A Sherlockian chapter edited by Chris Redmond: Holmes’ personality and code of ethics, as well as the underlying messages Doyle imbedded in each story. . .would become the groundwork for many college papers and form the philosophy of not only my career in bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology, but my life. I embraced Holmes’ words and actions, and opted to dedicate my work and my life to bringing justice to the voiceless in both the historical and forensic contexts.  She was made a member of the Hounds  in 2019 and invested in the Baker Street Irregulars as The Anthropological Journal  in 2020.

He took an evening course in Sherlock Holmes taught by Tom Joyce, which led to his withstanding the public humiliation of the “Dreaded Tripos” to become a proud and carousing member of Hugo’s Companions when C. Arnold Johnson was Sir Hugo.  His talk on “Sherlock Holmes as a Microscopist” and “Jack the Ripper –Murderer Microscopist” before that august group also led to Karen Skubish inviting him to address The Criterion Bar Association, which led to his membership in that illustrious organization.  Later, Donald B. Izban invited him to become a member of The Torists. Then, somewhere in the mysterious “smoked-filled room,” he was elected to join The Hounds of the Baskerville(sic).rumor has it that Fred Levin was somehow involved in this momentous decision.  Bob Mangler made the invitation official…….and the rest is history.

Henry Dierkes

William Henry Dierkes, Jr. was born June 9, 1908 in Syracuse, NY.  He attended Central High School in Detroit and received his B.A. from The College of the City of Detroit in 1929. He worked for the Detroit Public Library for 5 years and the 1930 U.S.  Census lists him as a publisher. In 1935 he produced Vincent Starrett’s Snow for Christmas. 125 copies were printed; “The book is designed and printed at Glencoe by Henry Dierkes and released in the month of December, 1935.” As Ray Betzner described in “Studies in Starrett,” “The publisher of the book also published a book of poetry by Dierkes, also in 1935. Those are the only two publications I can find under her name, which, in a delightful bit of happenstance, in Eileen Baskerville.” (the second one was The Man from Vermont, a book of Dierkes’ poetry which was dedicated to Robert Frost. Starrett wrote the foreword. The book was handstitched and bound to “revive the art of bookmaking”, Detroit Free Press, May 19, 1935). The publisher’s name Eileen Baskerville omits both her maiden and married last names. The happenstance cited by Betzner is that Dierkes married a young Englishwoman named Eileen Baskerville Ward in 1931.  Her mother was Alice Baskerville Ward, and her grandfather was Charles Henry Baskerville of Guernsey in the Channel Islands. Henry and Eileen had a daughter they named Celia Baskerville Dierkes. (1936-1998). Henry and Eileen divorced prior to 1940. He and his second wife Margaret lived in La Porte IN by 1944 where they ran the Dierkes Press and published Living Poetry Quarterly. William Rose Benet, a friend and collaborator of Christopher Morley’s, wrote in his column “The Phoenix Nest’ in  The Saturday Review of Literature, that the magazine“…was done after dark, as Mr. Dierke’s days are devoted to office work connected with office work connected with loading shells, mines, and bombs at an ordnance plant.” Dierkes would go on to publish his own poetry and Folio Magazine as well as other Starrett works such as Brillig Sonnets and Other Verse in 1949. The Dierkes moved to Arkansas in 1968. His tribute to Starrett appeared in the book Shaking Hands with Immortality: Encomiums for Vincent Starrett in 1975. His last work appears to be 1984’s Robert Frost: A Friend to a Younger Poet.  Dierkes died on July 21, 1989 in Eureka Springs, AK.

Otto Eisenschiml

William Hanchett Otto Eisenschiml was born in Vienna, Austria in June 1880. His father was a naturalized American citizen who fought as a soldier in an Illinois Regiment in the Civil War before returning to Austria. Eisenschiml graduated from the Polytechnic School of Vienna in 1901 and moved to the U.S. in 1905. He worked in a boiler factory in Pittsburgh before relocating to Chicago. He founded the Scientific Oil Compounding Company in 1911 and according to newspaper accounts, it was the “most informal and amicable in the Chicago business world…[he] never fired a single employee.”  His company was a distributor of materials used in making varnishes, paints and fungicides, and he held several patents.  His profitable investments allowed him to retire as an extremely wealthy man and to spend the remainder of his life pursuing his interests in history. He traveled extensively, visiting Civil War battle sites and employing researchers. His primary interest was the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, which he studied with the same skills he’d used as a chemist. He interviewed many people in his research and published Why Was Lincoln Murdered in 1937, followed by two other books about Lincoln in 1941 and 1943. Why Was Lincoln Murdered focused on Eisenchiml’s theory that Lincoln was murdered as part of a conspiracy led by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. He contributed “1916: The Orpet-Lambert Case” to the book Chicago Murders, which was edited by Sewell P. Wright and contained essays by writers such as Vincent Starrett. Eisenchiml died on December 7, 1963 and is buried in Graceland Cemetery. He was survived by his three children. His papers relating to his research on Lincoln are held at the University of Iowa Libraries and The Chicago Public Library. Information regarding the book Chicago Murders available on Ray Betzner’s site Studies in Starrett.

T.S. Eliot

T.S. Eliot, Nobel Laureate poet, was born September 26, 1888 in St. Louis, Mo.  After receiving a Harvard B.A. in 1909,, he studied philosophy at the Sorbonne and returned to Harvard to pursue a doctorate in philosophy (never completed).

By 1930 he had become “the most dominant figure in poetry and literary criticism in the English-speaking world” (Academy of American Poets), with the Poetry Foundation website noting that “One might also be surprised to learn that the greatest man of letters of his time was devoted to Sherlock Holmes.” In his 1929 review of The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Eliot wrote that “perhaps the greatest of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries is this: when we talk of him we invariably fall into the fantasy of his existence.” (His poem “Macavity: the Mystery Cat,” called the “Napoleon of Crime,” appeared in 1939’s Old Possum’s Books of Practical Cats, and is part of the Broadway show Cats.) He met Vincent Starrett in 1952, and received an honorary membership in the Hounds. Eliot died in London on January 4, 1965, with a memorial service at Westminster Abbey.

Although a reader of detective fiction from an early age, Tom Evans joined the ranks of Sherlockians only in mid-life, when he was recruited into Hugo’s Companionsin the early 1970’s, by long-time member Tom Magee. He has since been a regular member, serving in several offices including a long stint as “Most Drunken Companion” (aka Secretary).  While making no claims to serious Sherlockian scholarship, he has, over the years, composed essayistic presentations on such pertinent topics as London Fog, The Origins of the Detective and Dr. Watson’s ethnic heritage. “The Archetype of the Hound,” a speculation about how that Baskerville business might have turned out under other circumstances, was published in Sir Hugo’s Literary Companion, a collection of Sherlockian writings edited by Companion David Humphrey.  He comes by his Sherlockian interests in part through familiarity with things British gained from his Welsh forbears, his Scottish in-laws, and four years’ resident in London, “that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the Empire are irresistibly drained,” Mr. Evans grew up in Racine, Wisconsin, which he left in the early 1950s to attend the University of Chicago.  He emerged with a Master’s Degree in sociology from that institution, and returned some years later to earn an MBA from the Graduate School of Business.  His uniformed military service was in the Navy, in which he served as an intelligence officer, retiring as a Captain after four years’ active service and another 30 in the ready reserve. In civilian life, he worked as a systems analyst for the Navy Supply Systems Command and Advertising Program Manager for the Army Recruiting Command.  He lives, with his wife Jean, in Mundelein, Illinois.

Flint, Assistant State Historian at the Illinois State Historical Library in Springfield IL, and The Needle concluded: “All thanks to Miss Flint, who tells me she is a ‘faithful reader’ of this column. It’s a pleasure to send her a membership card in the Chicago chapter of the Baker Street Irregulars.” — Margaret Alice Flint was born, of an Illinois family, in Jackson, Tennessee on May 25, 1909, but was raised principally in Illinois, and in 1931 received a B.A. in history with honors from the University of Illinois, followed by a Master’s degree in Library Science from it after that.

Andrew Fusco

Andrew G. Fusco attended West Virginia University where he received his B.S.B.A. (Finance) and J.D.  He has served as an attorney, a special prosecutor and special assistant attorney general in addition to holding several faculty positions at West Virginia University. He has contributed a number of articles to legal books. Fusco was invested in the Baker Street Irregulars in 1972 as “Athelney Jones” and not long thereafter became a Hound – although by a unique route, not the standard path of scholarship and collegiality for which the group is renowned. In January, 1973, Fusco met Michael Murphy, Vincent Starrett’s literary executor and friend, at the post-BSI cocktail party at Julian Wolff’s apartment in New York. The two struck up a conversation, then a friendship. Already a collector, Fusco asked Murphy if he could get some books signed for him by Starrett and he graciously agreed. Soon thereafter, Fusco shipped a box of a half dozen or so books (including two first editions of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) to Murphy. Several weeks later, he received a letter from Murphy in which the latter noted that “Vincent was happy to see two copies of TPLOSH and wondered if we could keep one?”  Murphy explained that they needed a copy to do a reprint edition to benefit Starrett’s ailing financial status, and that Vincent would “make it worth his while”. Fusco agreed and some weeks later received the remainder of the books, each warmly inscribed – mostly in pencil – by Vincent’s then-frail hand. In addition, he received a bulky package of offprints, articles, sketches and other ephemera, with each item bearing Vincent’s signature. Among that latter group was Fusco’s membership card in The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) signed in ink by Starrett, and he has been a Hound ever since.  A few years later, in the mid to late 1970’s, Fusco was seated with a Chicago contingent at a BSI dinner at the Regency Hotel and Bob Mangler noted proudly that the tablemates were all “Hounds”. Fusco replied “I am a Hound too.” Mangler demanded “Who made you a Hound?” and Fusco responded, “Vincent Starrett.” Several weeks later, after submitting a suitably attested affidavit and copy of his membership card, Fusco received his Hound pin (old style, pewter) in the return post and proudly wears his BSI rosette and original Hound pin on all formal Sherlockian occasions. Fusco’s donated copy of TPLOSH, incidentally, was finally used for the limited edition of unbound signatures issued by Murphy’s Autolycus Press in 1979. Fusco is the General Editor of The Baker Street Irregulars Manuscript Series.

W.H. Gallienne

Wilfred Hansford Gallienne was born May 20, 1897 in Saint Pierre Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands.  Gallienne was a career British diplomat.

His name often appeared in newspaper articles during the war years as he represented Britain during fund raising and other appearances. After the war he traveled to other parts of the Midwest for award ceremonies honoring Americans who served in the British forces.  Gallienne attended the first meeting of The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) in 1944.

In 1975 he joined Hounds John Nieminski and Donald Pollock in creating the long-running Chicago-based quarterly journal Baker Street Miscellanea, including publishing serially, through the first six years of its quarterly issues, his Sherlock Holmes Reference Guide, a reworking of Jay Finley Christ’s Irregular Guide of 1947 keyed to the 1960 Doubleday Complete Sherlock Holmes, rather than the 1936 edition in Christ’s case. It was eventually brought out as Good Old Index by David Hammer BSI’s Gasogene Press in 1987, with a second expanded edition in 1994.

Why Physicians Should Read Sherlock Holmes.” In it he wrote that after teaching in medical schools for 5 decades, he mandated that certain Holmes stories be read by his students.  Citing his experiences diagnosing patients in a number of hospitals, he concluded “The bedside application of Sherlock Holmes’s advice to Watson can sometimes lead to the diagnosis without any tests at all. Once you have the scent, you can use your sense to save some cents.” Two years later he published another article in the same journal titled “Born to Observe” and wrote “In my early teens, when I first read the Sherlock Holmes stories, I was already driven to pursue a career in medicine. That Conan Doyle patterned Holmes after his mentor, Dr. Joe Bell, was well known.”  He was with the Department of Medicine/Cardiology Division, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. Grais passed away in Lincolnwood, IL on August 11, 2019.

David C. Humphrey

David C. Humphrey was born and bred in the small coal mining town of Winnetka, Ill.. He became devoted to Sherlock Holmes in the sixth grade when all the rest of his extensive library disappeared from underneath his bed (presumably confiscated by his parents).  David spent his first two years of university at Harlaxton College, Grantham, Lincs., England, not returning to this country until the heat was off. He completed his education at the University of Evansville and Michigan State University. He also attended law school for one year at the University of Puget Sound, which has since disappeared (you can’t prove nothin’, you got no witnesses).  Two of David’s work experiences were working in a bank (bookkeeping) and in a frame shop which have led him to two of his favorite hobbies: not framing pictures and not balancing his checkbook. Among his other hobbies are history, movies, The America’s Cup, British soccer (Nottingham Forest), Titanic, Harry Potter, Jack the Ripper, knot tying and swords & knives (historical). His literary tastes range from Beowulf, Shakespeare and Dickens to Wodehouse, Sayers and Christie. His other Sherlockian credits include: Hugo’s Companions, The Sherlock Holmes Society of London, The Criterion Bar Association and The Scotland Yarders. He became a Hound in 1996.

Ridgely Hunt

Ridgely Hunt was born in Chicago in 1959, and, thanks to a gift of The Complete Sherlock Holmes (Doubleday edition), a postcard from 221b Baker Street (Abbey Building Society edition), and a copy of Arthur Lewis’ book Copper Beeches, all from his father, a writer for the Chicago Tribune, he conceived a love for the Canon and for the Chicago Scions which he began attending in 1971 when he was twelve years old.  At the time was nicknamed “Young Wiggins” and has since been nicknamed (by Don Izban) the Dorian Gray of the Sherlockians (which he finds flattering, if mistaken).

Alan Iliff

Professor Alan J. Iliff was born in 1947 and has lived most of his life in Chicago.  He saw the first showing of the Basil Rathbone movie of The Hound of the Baskervilles on local television, and was given a Book of the Month Club two volume Doubleday Canon by his parents, when he was about ten years old.  It disintegrated, as book club editions are wont to do, but he now has many others.  He was introduced to Sherlockianism and to Sir Hugo’s Companions in the early 1980s by Companion (and Hound) Ridgely Hunt.  After a few decades, he finally became a full-fledged Companion and a Hound in 152 A.H. Professor Iliff has been the Most Wicked Companion (aka, the Treasurer) of Sir Hugo’s Companions since 2009, having been apprenticed in wickedness to Companion (and Hound) Jack Wilson and then succeeding Companion Wilson in that evil position. Professor Iliff likes to remind other Sherlockians that his middle name is James, and that James Moriarty was also a mathematics professor.

Donald B. Izban

Donald B. Izban has been called “the Dean of Chicago Sherlockians” – a title he resents primarily because he doesn’t quite know what it means. But, that’s not unusual – he doesn’t understand lots of things; for example, he’s been seeking the answer to this question for decades: Why do Sherlockians place so much emphasis on becoming an invested member of The Baker Street Irregulars, when almost all of the “action” (and incidentally, the fun) in the Sherlock Holmes hobby is at the local scion level?   That said, compeer Izban enjoys the “action” to a seemingly infinite degree, to wit:

  • He’s authored or co-authored (with his wife, Patricia) five Sherlock Holmes books, and a sixth is, proverbially, “in the works”;
  • he’s been a contributor for years to various Sherlockian publications with essays, reviews, criticisms, poetry, etc. to his credit;
  • he received the investiture of “Market Street” from The Baker Street Irregulars in 1994, and has founded several BSI scion societies, including The Torists International (with Tony Citera and Fred Levin as co-founders), Colonel Sebastian Moran’s Secret Gun Club, a Sherlock Holmes Brunch Club, The STUD Sherlockian Society, The Sherlockians by Invitation Only Society, and The Lucca Gang of New York City;
  • he’s created such Sherlockian “grand doings” as the enormously popular and successful Canonical Convocation and Caper (in Door County, Wisconsin), a mongoose hunt on every leap year day since 1996, a Morley Motorcade, the Sherlockathon (which is a Canonically styled treasure hunt kind of experience), a Rache Road Rally; and . . .

the List goes on, and on, and on. But who really cares?  Nobody, absolutely nobody, and that includes Don Izban, himself.  However, there is a message to this diatribe – an exemplum in truth, as a philosopher would say – and, if you’ve read this far, that subtle lesson should be –again, put philosophically – self-evident.    Satis verborum

Jens Byskov Jensen

Jens Byskov Jensen became a member of Hugo’s Companions in 2002. At the time he was living in Denmark (his native country), but in 2003 he went to a meeting at Baskerville Hall, and the following year he moved to Chicago. Jensen was a featured speaker at the 60th Anniversary of The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic). When relocating to New Orleans, Jensen found the Sherlockian scene there lacking, as he longed for the familiar carousal of the Companions. So he started a scion society in New Orleans, which was given the name Le Cercle de Sherlock Holmes, honoring the rich French heritage of the Crescent City. That group was recognized as a scion of The Baker Street Irregulars in 2006. Unfortunately, Hurricane Katrina had her impact on the group and it became inactive shortly thereafter. Jensen became ”The Blanched Soldier” in the Baker Street Irregulars in 2009.

Robert J. Mangler, Master of the Hounds, 1964-2004

Robert J. Mangler was born on August 15, 1930. He was a man loyal to his country, the village in which he lived, his family and friends, and the Sherlockian community that he cherished until slipping into the Yellow Fog on November 29, 2010. Bob began his Sherlockian activities in his hometown of Chicago in 1953 with The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) and Hugo’s Companions, but this association was cut short due to active duty in the Navy. He returned in 1960 and found that the Sherlockian scene had been dormant for three years. With support from Vincent Starrett, founder of the Baskerville branch of The Baker Street Irregulars, Bob issued a “clarion call” and convened a meeting of former members where he spoke about ending Chicago’s Great Hiatus. According to the late John Nieminski, Bob’s oration to those assembled rivaled in its intensity William Jennings Bryan’s famed “Cross of Gold” speech and had the effect of stampeding “the rumpees” in attendance. Bob was a persuasive guy and honed his oratory skills as a lawyer, receiving his degree from Northwestern University and serving as Corporation Counsel for the Village of Wilmette for 27 years. His leadership role at the Chicago Sherlockian revival meeting in 1960 resurrected both The Hounds and Companions and ushered in a golden age of Sherlockiana anchored by Vincent Starrett in Chicago and Julian Wolff in New York. In 1962, Bob was invested in The Baker Street Irregulars as “Sir Hugo Baskerville,” and in 1964 the esteemed Mr. Starrett gave Bob the title, Master of the Hounds. Undoubtedly, this was a high point for him but his greatest personal satisfaction came from establishing an appropriate headstone in Graceland Cemetery to mark the grave of Vincent Starrett who had died in 1974 with little financial means. The memorial was dedicated on October 26, 1986, the 100th anniversary of Starrett’s birth.  After an amazing 40 years, Bob turned over leadership of The Hounds in 2005 due to health problems. Through it all, he never complained and carried on with life in a manner that showed a quality of character that few people exhibit under very trying circumstances. Not really known for his sense of humor, when he went through the amputation of a leg, he joked that his BSI Investiture should be changed from “Sir Hugo Baskerville” to “Jonathan Small.”

Jay Marshall

James “Jay” Ward Marshall was born August 29, 1919 in Abington MA.  He became interested in magic when he was six; he saw performances by Thurston and Houdini and traded his bicycle to buy a magic course.  Marshall studied at Bluefield College for one year but dropped out to become an entertainer. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps on Dec. 18, 1941, and as his obituary noted, he “was island hopping in the Pacific to entertain military personnel in USO shows.” (New York Times). It was during these shows that he came up with an easy dummy to use in his ventriloquist act; a glove and bunny ears which he named Lefty. He moved to Chicago in the 1950s and edited the magic magazine New Phoenix for five years. In 1963 he opened Magic Inc. with his magician wife. He appeared on the “Ed Sullivan Show” 14 times, played at the New York Palace and the Palladium in London and opened for many well-known performers such as Milton Berle and Liberace. He was the first act to open for Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas.  In addition to performing, Marshall was a historian of stage magic and author of several books on the subject. He was a member of The Caxton Club, a philanthropist, and a voracious collector of books. In 1992 he was named Dean of the Society of American Magicians. “He will keep the title until his wand is broken at his gravesite in a magicians’ ritual.” (New York Times) As a member of both groups, he performed for both the Hounds and Hugo’s Companions. He died in Chicago on May 10, 2005 and is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. Seigfried, of Seigried and Roy, noted “He was one of magic’s most beloved figures.” (The Caxtonian) Lefty now resides at the Smithsonian Institution with Charlie McCarthy and Kermit the Frog.

Mike McSwiggin

Mike McSwiggin was born June 14th, 1973 in Baltimore.  He discovered he had a love of mysteries in first grade, when exposed to both Sherlock Holmes and Encyclopedia Brown.  While the young Mr. Brown did not stay long, Mr. Holmes rarely left Mike’s side.  In addition to an admiration for mysteries, Mike had a rare compulsion called pentanumerophilia.  This strong desire to constantly sort things into groupings of five became somewhat debilitating, until one day Mike’s mom took him to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription.  While at the counter, Mike could see the pharmacist counting tablets to put into a bottle.  And he was counting by fives!  Ten or so years later, in 1997, Mike graduated with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Maryland.  Eventually, Mike moved to Cincinnati.  Serendipity got him to a meeting of The Tankerville Club, Cincinnati’s Sherlockian scion.  There he met the club’s founder, the late Paul Herbert, who introduced Mike to the wider world of Sherlockians.  Mike began attending conferences and meetings from the midwest to the east coast.  He has spoken at A Scintillation of Scions, contributed chapters to several books, and serves as vice-president (officially “Second Most Dangerous Member”) of The Tankerville Club.  He also founded the first Sherlockian scion for pharmacists, The Fairly Good Dispensers.  He received the investiture A Seven Percent Solution from the Baker Street Irregulars in 2019.  Mike loves spending time with his family, especially his sons Joe and Jack.

Michael Murphy

Mike Murphy was born November 16th, 1930. His writings covered many topics, but his favorite subject was a favorite writer of his, Vincent Starrett, met by happenstance one day in Chicago’s Central Bookstore: “I had just bought another of his books,” he recalled in 1986, “when the clerk asked me if I would like to meet the author. ‘Vincent Starrett?’ I exhaled, turning. We were properly introduced, he inscribed my new acquisition for me, we talked for an hour or more, and I asked him to lunch. I remember the details distinctly. We talked for seven hours.” After moving to Chicago later he took on the responsibility for the ageing Starrett’s care and interests, became involved in Chicago Sherlockiana as a result, and also wrote Basil Rathbone’s introductory and closing remarks for WGN-TV’s mid-1960s “Sherlock Holmes Theatre.” After Starrett’s death in 1974, Hound Robert W. Hahn wrote: “it was the care and attention given him by Mike Murphy that kept Vincent comfortable and even moderately productive in those last few years” — an example of which was 1973’s Late, Later, and Possibly Last: Essays by Vincent Starrett. Others after Starrett’s death included a new Private Life of Sherlock Holmes introduced by Murphy, a facsimile of the legendary 1943 Scribner’s Bookstore catalogue of Starrett’s Sherlockian collection; and Post-Mortem: H. Bedford-Jones, Starrett’s correspondence in 1934 with the pulp-writer about a Sherlock Holmes pastiche hoax he’d perpetrated on Alexander Woollcott. In 1976 Murphy was invested in The Baker Street Irregulars as “The Noble Bachelor,” but died at age 55 of a longstanding heart problem on June 15, 1986 in Kansas City, MO. His BSJ obituary, by its editor Philip Shreffler, called Murphy “one of the very few truly old-world gentlemen that it has been our pleasure to know; his kindness, gentleness, and Sherlockian devotion will be missed profoundly.”

Laura Page

Laura V. Page is an adopted Sherlockian because of her personal assistance to Vincent Starrett during his last years and her tireless work in partnership with Michael Murphy and Bob Mangler  to properly mark Vincent’s grave at Graceland Cemetery in  Chicago. Laura designed the memorial stone that features an open book with two of VS’s bookplates cut into the granite along with the phrase “It is always 1895.”  Laura and Bob (who affectionately called each other “Steed” and “Mrs. Peel”) presided over the placement ceremony in 1986 celebrating Vincent’s birth Centennial, sadly without Mike due to his untimely death. Laura was born in Evanston, IL and has long lived in Madison, WI amongst the early rising cheese heads. Her love of books started at home; her mother was a great reader, and then her first real job was in a bookstore in Glenview, IL. The store’s manager, Mike Murphy, recited Shakespeare and Byron, told stories of Ernest Hemingway and spoke of a mysterious great man of letters who lived near Wrigley Field. After meeting him, falling in love with Vincent was easy; he was funny and kind, an amazing story teller, and he swore like a sailor about “those s-o-b publishers” who didn’t pay him fair royalties on his many works.  With the help of Laura and Mike, Vincent was moved to a safer location, the Oak Park Arms residential hotel in Oak Park after the death of Vincent’s wife, Ray, where he enjoyed a few years of long walks and long dinner conversations about people, poetry, newspapers, detectives, traveling the world, and Sherlock Holmes. By invitation of The Hound’s Masters, Bob Mangler and now Donald Terras, Laura tries to join in the annual Hounds fall dinner celebrations when she can. Laura was honored in Anno Holmes 157 by being given a Hounds membership, and she’s proud to be one of Holmes’ and Vincent’s devotees.

Edward Quayle

Edward Quayle was born in Van Wert, Ohio on February 15, 1905. He attended the University of Chicago and in March 1928 married Mary Jane Ward. They lived first in Evanston, but were in Greenwich Village NY in 1939 when he became a salesman for the World’s Fair. Both tried to make their livings as writers, but their lack of success and subsequent financial problems contributed to a nervous breakdown his wife suffered, leading to an eight-month confinement at a state mental hospital. Later she wrote The Snake Pit about her experiences there; the novel was published by Random House in 1946, with publisher Bennett Cerf sending the galleys to movie director Anatole Litvak, who made a motion picture from it in 1948. Ward credited her husband and doctors for her recovery. With her success, Quayle set aside his career as a statistician and accountant and became her business manager. In the mid-1940s they bought a 130-acre dairy farm near Elgin IL to escape the constant public attention over the book, but eventually moved back to Evanston. In November 1955, the Decatur Daily Review described Quayle as “a safety engineer in prevention of industrial accidents.” Quayle remained supportive of his wife’s work in the field of mental health. His essay “Suffer the Little Children” appeared in Vol. 3, Number 4 of The Baker Street Journal in 1948.  Mary Jane’s death in 1981 was followed by his on August 25, 1992, in San Diego, CA.

Basil Rathbone

The first truly great Sherlock Holmes in movies was born in Johannesburg, South Africa on June 13, 1892, and began his theatrical career in London in 1911. After serving in the British Army during World War I, he resumed his theatrical career, in New York as well as London, and entered motion pictures in 1921. In 1939 his manner and appearance led to the role of Sherlock Holmes in 20th Century Fox’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, and while he would play many other roles in future years, his course was set as the new public image of Sherlock Holmes, recreating the role on screen another thirteen times, and also on radio — a persona renewed in the American mind after his 1940s movies began to be run on television in the 1950s.  Rathbone and Vincent Starrett met for the first time the summer of 1947, when the actor was in Chicago on business and arranged to meet the great Sherlockian writer about a Holmesian reverie he had written called “Daydream” (which, thanks to Starrett, appeared in the October 1947 Baker Street Journal, and in 1989 in BSJ editor Philip Shreffler’s collection Sherlock Holmes by Gas-Lamp: Highlights from the First Four Decades of The Baker Street Journal). After their meeting, on July 13, 1947, Rathbone wrote to Starrett from his weekend home in Sharon, CT: “It was a privilege & a pleasure meeting you. Thank you so much for taking time out from your busy life, and for your graciousness in making me a member of The Chicago Baskervilles.” The two great men continued to correspond periodically over the years that followed, and while it was not their only subsequent reunion in person, in 1966 a memorable event in Hounds history took place when Chicago’s WGN-TV created a movie series called “The Sherlock Holmes Theater,” and brought Rathbone to Chicago to tape introductions and commentaries to his own Sherlock Holmes movies. On August 2nd, the final taping session was followed by a memorable and candid three-hour lunch between Rathbone and Starrett, plus Hounds Robert Mangler, John Nieminski, and Robert Hahn. Basil Rathbone died the following year, at age 75, on July 21, 1967, leaving an indelible impression of himself as Sherlock Holmes among Sherlockians and the general public alike. His autobiography, published in 1956, is In and Out of Character.

Robert Sharfman

I am a Chicago product. Born in 1936 (you do the math – I am older than dirt), on the Westside to parents who lived at 4800 South Green Street (edge of back of the yards).  We moved to South Shore when I was 3 months old.  I attended O’Keefe Grammar School; Hyde Park High School; the University of Illinois (Champaign); and DePaul Law School.  I practiced law in Chicago for over 50 years with a firm I founded with my partner David Gomberg. I taught Law at IIT-Kent in its LLM program on Financial Services; and Economics and Finance as the Goodyear Executive Professor at Kent State University in Ohio.  It was my version of paying it forward. I became a member of Hugo’s Companions when I heard about them from Wally Phillips, a popular D.J. at the time (in the 60’s).  I worked hard at avoiding any responsible office, but did meet the managing director of the Abbey National Building Society (located at 221 Baker Street), and his wife (who was from Lake Forest, Illinois), and the owner of the Bolton Building Society located next to the Abby National on Baker Street.  It was a privilege to meet John Bennett Shaw, Vincent Starrett (who signed my Hounds Certificate of Membership); Bob Mangler; Bob Hahn; John Neminski; Eli Liebow and other great Sherlockian scholars.  I never was a scholar, but a devoted fan of the Master – and really of those who were scholars.  My writings (on the writing or otherwise) consisted of articles and one book on dry legal subjects of no special importance to the BSI.  I have sent my papers on economics and finance to Mycroft at his club, but have had no responses.  When I was inducted into The Hounds one needed to “do something to add to the writings”.  I had no Sherlockian writings, but did have perfect attendance and was a great toast drinker.  I think that is what made me eligible. I have learned from them all and am a better person for the effect of their presence in my life. My Sherlockian collection includes a handwritten note from ACD and a signed copy of the book 221B by VS. My Sherlockian experience has been wonderful and I tip my deerstalker hat to all of you who let me tag along.

Al Shaw

Al Shaw had always enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes stories but when his brother, Mike, started corresponding from Africa using the Dancing Men cypher for privacy, things changed and his appreciation deepened.  Upon rereading all the stories, Al’s interest in Holmes was codified.  He joined Hugo’s Companions in 1971 and served as officer in the organization until the 80’s.  Al is currently “Sir Hugo,” the president of Hugo’s Companions.  He was present the first meeting (and then a member) of The Criterion Bar Association in 1972. He wrote his first Sherlockian article (published in Baker Street Miscellanea) and became a member of The Hounds of the Baskervilles (sic) in 1982.  Al reflects that he was privileged to be a friend of many of the Sherlockian giants: John Nieminski, John Bennet Shaw, Ely Liebow, Fred Levin, Bob Mangler, Pauls Smedegaard, Bill Goodrich, to name a few.  Al Shaw continues to write, contributing to periodicals and anthologies, and is active in multiple scions and Sherlockian activities. In 2018, he received the investiture of “Sir Hugo Baskerville” from The Baker Street Irregulars. He has collections of Sherlockiana, Tobacco Pipes, and Fountain Pens.

John Bennett Shaw

John Bennett Shaw was born October 10, 1913 in Tulsa, OK. He received his A.B. from Notre Dame in 1937, did graduate work in literature at Columbia University, and finished his M.A. at the University of Tulsa in 1939. He was CEO of the Bennett Drilling Company in Oklahoma’s oil industry, but also made much of owning a Tulsa bookstore, a funeral home business that he inherited, and the arcane privileges of being a Grand Knight of the Holy Sepulchre in the Roman Catholic Church. Shaw had been devoted to Sherlock Holmes since reading The Hound of the Baskervilles in childhood, and, as a voracious collector of all things Sherlockian, he was invested “The Hans Sloane of My Age” in the BSI in 1965. The 1960s were also a time of scion society pursuits for Shaw, becoming deeply involved in The Great Alkali Plainsmen of Greater Kansas City and The Arkansas Valley Investors of Little Rock, joining The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic) in 1966, and founding in 1967, within the American Library Association, the BSI’s Sub-Librarians Scion. In 1969 he retired to Santa Fe, N.M., where he founded The Brothers Three of Moriarty, became the “Johnny Appleseed” of scion societies across the land, and conducted Sherlock Holmes workshops from coast to coast that brought the BSI to the attention of many previously unaware of it. He  became a member of The Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes in 1991 with an investiture of “Arcadia.” So many came to Santa Fe to visit him and his collection that his wife Dorothy dubbed their home La Posada Shaw. His Rabelaisian love for quizzes and puns was recorded in The Ragged Shaw, 1987, and The Really Ragged Shaw, 1994. The Basic Holmesian Library, known as the Shaw 100, was compiled in 1983, revised in 1998, and served as a guide to many. Shaw died October 6, 1994. His collection was donated to the University of Minnesota and became the critical-mass of its Sherlock Holmes Collections today. And in 2013’s The Sage of Santa Fe, BSI Susan Rice spoke for many when she said, near the end of her memoir of Shaw, “He simply opened his life and welcomed me in.”

In July 1943 Simmons went to New Guinea and then the Philippines, filing articles about the battle for Leyte Island and the invasion of Luzon. He used captured Japanese paper “to print an edition of the Tribune for the soldiers…the first copy was autographed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur and sent to Tribune publisher Robert McCormick.

Edgar W. Smith

Edgar W. Smith was born April 1st, 1894, in Bethel, CT but raised mainly in Brooklyn N.Y. After high school he worked for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and then as a clerk at the J. P. Morgan Co. in Manhattan, while taking evening courses at New York University’s School of Commerce. When America entered World War I in 1917, he enlisted in the Army, was selected for officer training, and served at the War Department, Washington, D.C., and in Paris. He came home in 1919 a discharged captain with a French wife, and went to work for the new General Motors Export Company headquartered in Manhattan, where he rose to be a vice president of General Motors Overseas Operations. Autodidact and a great reader from boyhood, his love for Sherlock Holmes was reawakened in 1936 when his wife gave him a copy of Vincent Starrett’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. Smith wrote its author an enthusiastic thousand-word letter that October. He did not hear back until August 1937, when Starrett returned home from two years in the Far East, but the two men then commenced an active correspondence lasting more than two decades. In January 1940 Smith prodded Christopher Morley’s Baker Street Irregulars back to life with its first annual dinner in four years, and became its Buttons-cum-Commissionaire henceforth (and from 1946 on, the Baker Street Journal’s editor). While Smith annually implored Starrett to come to New York for the BSI’s annual dinners, Starrett was not in a financial position to do so; but the two men did meet in person in 1941 when Smith came to Chicago on business, staying at the Blackstone Hotel the nights of October 16 and 17, and arranging to get together with Starrett at last. Their Sherlockian mutual-admiration society reached a new level on December 6, 1944, when Smith sent Starrett the first Baker Street Irregular certificate of membership, with the investiture of A Study in Scarlet, just as Starrett was sending Smith a certificate of membership in The Hounds. The two men went on this way for many years, contributing to each other’s Sherlockian endeavors in scores of ways, and providing each other with counsel and encouragement. Smith retired from GM in 1954, and continued to run the BSI and edit the BSJ until his unexpected and widely mourned death at home, in Morristown, N.J., on September 17, 1960.

Vincent Starrett

  Vincent Starrett (October 26, 1886 – January 5, 1974) was a poet, newspaper reporter, mystery writer, columnist, bibliographer and self styled DOFAB or Damned Old Fool About Books. Born in Toronto, he lived most of his life in Chicago and was a fixture in the city’s used and rare bookshops for seven decades. Among his passions was Sherlock Holmes. Starrett’s contributions to our literature have become cornerstone works: “The Adventure of the Unique Hamlet,” The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes and the bittersweet sonnet, “221B.”  The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (published in 1933) solidified Starrett’s status as an expert in the life and times of the Baker Street sleuth. The book also caught the attention of Christopher Morley, who invited Starrett to the first formal dinner of the Baker Street Irregulars. Although obligations in Chicago would prevent Starrett from returning to New York, he and Morley remained lifelong friends, much like Sherlock and Watson. In 1944, he received the investiture of “A Study in Scarlet” from The Baker Street Irregulars. As for the Hounds, Starrett’s pivotal role is detailed elsewhere.  To this day, Sherlockian societies pay tribute to Starrett’s love of Holmes by reciting his famous sonnet. Let the last words be Starrett’s:

Here dwell together still two men of note
Who never lived and so can never die:
How very near they seem, yet how remote
That age before the world went all awry.
But still the game’s afoot for those with ears
Attuned to catch the distant view-halloo:
England is England yet, for all our fears—
Only those things the heart believes are true.

A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
As night descends upon this fabled street:
A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
And it is always eighteen ninety-five.

Daniel Stashower

Daniel Stashower, with a B.A. from Northwestern University and an M.F.A. from Columbia University, is a professional writer in Washington D.C. His first book in 1985, The Adventure of the Ectoplasmic Man, a Sherlock Holmes pastiche involving Harry Houdini, remains in print today. (Dan is an amateur magician, a member of the Society of American Magicians, and author of three mystery novels with Houdini as sleuth, a record having something to do with the choice of “Thurston” for his Baker Street Irregular investiture in 2001.) Following several years in England as the Raymond Chandler Fulbright Fellow, he wrote Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyle, and later co-edited (with fellow Hound Jon Lellenberg) three more books about Sherlock Holmes’ creator, Arthur Conan Doyle: A Life in Letters, “Dangerous Work”: Diary of an Arctic Adventure, and Conan Doyle’s previously unpublished first novel, The Narrative of John Smith. Dan’s non-Sherlockian books include The Hour of Peril: The Secret Plot to Murder Lincoln Before the Civil WarThe Beautiful Cigar Girl: Mary Rogers, Edgar Allan Poe and the Invention of Murder, and The Boy Genius and the Mogul: The Untold Story of Television.

David Stevens

David Clark Stevens was born August 8, 1938 in LaGrange Park Ill, where he also grew up. He was equal parts adventurer, writer, journalist, collector of rare antiquities, raconteur, and a man about town and the world. He joined the Marine Corps Reserve in 1956 and served six years. His college years began at Baylor University before moving to Syracuse University where he graduated in 1959.  Following graduation, he took a ten month trip around the world on board cargo freighters. Dave’s entry into the world of so-called men’s magazines was in 1962 when he landed a job as staff writer at Evanston based Rogue Magazine. In November 1966 he was hired by Playboy Magazine where he became senior editor of the Modern Living section, a job which allowed him to travel all around the globe when the term “exotic location” meant just that: Timbuktu, Penang, Madeleine Islands, the salt mines of Bilma in West Africa and other stops off the beaten path and to indulge his “love of cars, travel, food, wine, spirits, [and] books” (Chicago Tribune, August 4, 2019).  He was known for writing about his adventures, which included “driving across the Sahara, traveling to the North Pole, drifting down the Amazon, visiting the castles of Scotland, causing trouble in Paris, flying down the bobsled run at Lake Placid, and riding a snow mobile down the Baja Peninsula.” (Ibid.) I became friends with Dave in 1985, learning that he lived a few blocks from where I grew up in Evanston, IL. We had a common interest in Playboy: him through his job and me through an in-law relation, Victor Lownes, who was CEO of Playboy Clubs around the world. We also had a common interest in the Sherlock Holmes Canon. A gracious host, I spent many a night with Dave in spirited conversation and drinks in his home library looking over the works of Doyle, Kipling, Hemingway, and others while discussing his passion for collections – principally Citroens and Morgans – his three English mastiffs and the time he had lunch with Prince Andrew at Skibo Castle before test driving the new 2003 Land Rover. Dave recounted in the August, 1965 issue of  Rogue that: “I first discovered Sherlock Holmes at age ten when some wise relative slipped me a paperback copy of The Hound of the Baskervilles…When the yellow fog hung thick bout 221 B Baker Street, Holmes and Watson were already up and gone, their Hansom cab creaking and swaying over the cobblestones-and huddled on the sofa, knees under my chin, I was with them.” Dave became a member of Hugo’s Companions in 1968 and was instrumental in helping me put together Hugo’s Companions (D.J. Terras, Windy City Press, 1999). Dave ascended to the ranks of the Hounds in 1971. Dave retired from his position as Senior Editor, Modern Living for Playboy in 2004.  He was a member of The Wine and Food Society, the Adventurers Club, Hugo’s Companions, the Cliff Dwellers, the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, the US Lighthouse Society, and the Chicago Press Club. David died on July 31, 2019.

Regina Stinson

During the summer of Regina’s 12th year, she happened upon a series of movies starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Instantly smitten by the character, Sherlock Holmes, Regina hungered for more. Her older brother handed her a paperback collection of a small selection of the short stories, telling her that the “real” Sherlock Holmes lived in an earlier time before cars and airplanes. Regina’s affection for the detective grew from there.  Eventually, she bought herself the Doubleday Complete and began reading all the stories. In 1988, after looking for a local scion and finding no active ones, Regina began her own, which the founding members agreed would be called “The Ribston-Pippins”. They celebrate their 30th year in 2018.

In 2006, Regina was honored by the Baker Street Irregulars with the investiture of “A Little Ribston-Pippin” and in 2012 with the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes investiture of “Violet Smith”. She has further endeavored to keep the master’s memory green with numerous presentations at libraries, museums and civic centers.  In 2017, Regina was delightfully surprised to receive a certificate of membership in the Hounds of the Baskerville (sic).

Gary Thaden

On rainy summer afternoons following my eleventh birthday, I watched Mel Jass, the host of “Mel’s Matinee Movie,” on Minneapolis/St. Paul’s WTCN channel 11 independent TV station. He played old movies including the Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes movies. I was hooked.  A few years later I read Baring-Gould’s Annotated Sherlock Holmes from beginning to end and discovered that there was a magazine about Sherlock Holmes.  I wrote to Julian Wolff and received a post card reply that the Fordham Press published The Baker Street Journal and I should inquire there about subscribing. Then life became busy with high school, girls, college at the University of Minnesota and the William Mitchell College of Law. In the local newspaper, I saw an article about a Sherlock Holmes conference at the University of Minnesota.  Somehow this recently graduated unemployed attorney convinced his wife that he needed to spend their money on this conference.  As far as she knew, Sherlock Holmes was a subject that I had heretofore expressed no interest in, nor could I explain the driving need to go.  In September 1984, I attended “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in Minnesota.” I still remember being fascinated by Michael Harrison and his factual writing on the Victorian era.  Shortly after the conference I joined the Norwegian Explorers.  In 2002, I penned an article in the Norwegian Explorers first Christmas Annual titled “Watson’s Books.”  I increased my involvement in the Explorers, including serving on the conference committee in 2001, 2004, 2007, and as Conference Co-Chair in 2010, 2013 and 2016. I was honored by the Norwegian Explorers membership to follow Julie McKuras as President in 2007 and have served in that capacity ever since.  My other memberships include The Sherlock Holmes Society of London and The Bootmakers of Toronto. I am presently the government affairs director for two construction trade associations.

Jerome B. Victory was born on January 16, 1953 in the near south-side neighborhood of Bridgeport. He lived three long and two short blocks from Comiskey Park, the then home of the Chicago White Sox and three long, three short blocks from the original Mayor Richard J. Daly. His father worked nights so Jerry only spent time with his dad on weekends where they either watched the Sox on WGN or watched the varied mystery movies that ‘GN played on Sunday afternoons. Boston Blackie, Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto, and of course, Sherlock Holmes, the only non-alliterative name in the batch.  His father’s love of mysteries was inherited by Jerry and he soon began a lifelong love of reading. Jerry’s introduction into Sherlockian Societies occurred in 1989 when he met antiquarian book dealer, Tom Joyce, at a seminar Tom was conducting at Scotland Yard Books in Winnetka, IL. During the Q&A Tom invited Jerry to attend a meeting of Hugo’s Companions. At that first meeting Jerry attended he met an extremely interesting group of people and told Tom he would be interested in joining. At the second meeting he was surprised to find himself in a rather heated election campaign over disagreements revolving around the clubs constitution. That meeting resulted in the ouster of the current Sir Hugo who was replaced by my new friend, Tom Joyce. That meeting resulted in some members resigning in protest and one of those was the editor of Hugo’s newsletter, The Grimpen Mire Gazette.  After far too many Guinness’s Tom convinced Jerry to take over as editor, or Baskerville Herald, a position Jerry had no experience in at all, although he did own a personal computer. Jerry stayed in this job for most of the 1990’s serving under three Sir Hugo’s, Tom Joyce, Arnie Matanky and Wayne Siatt. Job location changes forced him to miss too many meetings which in turn forced him to resign as the Newsletters Herald. Although his memory is flaky Jerry believes he became a Hound in 1992.  Other than the Sherlockian life Jerry worked for the IBM Corporation and AT&T for thirty-one years combined, which not only robbed him of his soul and nervous system but also taught him to totally distrust large corporations. He is currently married to his first wife, Terri and they have been living contentedly for thirty-five years with a varying number of rescued dogs.

Gerald Wachs

Gerald Newell Wachs was born November 5, 1937 in Chicago IL. He attended the University of Illinois and the University of Illinois Medical School. He served his internship at Chicago’s Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center and his residency at UCSF. Wachs spent 20 years at  Schering, now Merck, where he served as a senior associate medical director.  While there, he worked to obtain FDA approval for over 20 new medications.  He then ran his own private dermatological and cosmetic surgery practice in Millburn and Summit NJ for 18 years. Wachs was past president of the New Jersey Dermatological Society, a member of the Millburn Board of Education for seven years and president of the Millburn Board of Health.  Wachs began to  collect 19th century first Edition English poetry in 1970. The Gerald N. Wachs Collection of Nineteenth-Century English Poetry grew to nearly 900 items and was displayed at the Grolier Club. An inveterate collector, he stated in one interview he stated that he collected “books, stamps, coins, art prints, tropical fish, baseball cards” and other items. He co-wrote the bibliography for playwright Tom Stoppard and the Wachs Collection of Tom Stoppard was promised to the University of Chicago library. He was a life master in bridge and loved baseball, collecting books about the game and belonging to the Elysian Fields Chapter in Northern New Jersey of Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). Wachs gave toasts at BSI dinners and was a member of Mrs. Hudson’s Cliffdwellers and The Sir James Saunders Society. He received the investiture of “Godfrey Emsworth” in 1995 from The Baker Street Irregulars and in 1998, assumed the investiture of “Sir James Saunders.”  Wachs died November 8, 2013 in New York.

Janice Weiner

Janice Weiner is a life-long resident of Chicago. She has two B. A. degrees in art (teaching and graphic design) and a Master’s in Instructional Media. She is a retired junior high librarian and spent almost her whole teaching career as a librarian for junior-high-age students. She thinks this made her susceptible to becoming interested in Sherlock Holmes and Richard III — two interests that have caused people to stare at her when she mentions them. She read her first Holmes story, a simplified for children SPEC, in an anthology she received for her tenth birthday. However, it wasn’t until much much later that she found herself a founding member of The Scotland Yarders. She was one of the early editors of the scion’s newsletter and took it over after some years. She has been the Commissioner of the scion for over a decade now and still edits the newsletter. During her tenure in The Scotland Yarders she joined The Criterion Bar Association, The Torists International S. S., The Hounds of the Baskerville (sic), and other societies. She has participated in other Sherlockian activities, such as the CCC in Door County, and the BSI Weekend. She has to say that being a Sherlockian has been a very rewarding experience.

Michael Whelan

In 1950, Mike Whelan purchased The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Garden City edition with his caddy tips.  Neither he nor his mother who had sparked his interest in Sherlock Holmes, had an inkling of where that particular purchase would lead him.  That passion, thus ignited, has continued unabated for over 50 years. Mike was a member of Hugo’s Companions in the early to late 60’s.   Sherlockian zeal, wrapped as close as an Inverness cape, has accompanied him from coast to coast and around the world.  Whelan received the investiture of “Vincent Spaulding” in 1974 and has served as “Wiggins,” or chairman, of The Baker Street Irregulars for 20 years.  He is a retired business executive, married to Mary Ann Bradley [honoured as “The Woman” of The BSI (1993) and invested as “Mary Morstan” (2012)], with three sons and seven grandchildren.  He previously served as the Board president of The Friends of the Lilly Library, having served on that board for nearly 15 years.  He is a member of the Indianapolis Literary Club, as well as a proud member of numerous Sherlockian societies.  Hugo’s Companions was his first introduction to a formal Sherlockian organization with its illustrious denizens.

William B. White

William Braid White was born on August 24, 1878 in Haslemere, Surrey, England. He emigrated to the 1896 and by the time he married in 1915, he listed his occupation as editor as he did when became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in 1923.  By 1930, the federal census listed his occupation as “engineer and research, acoustics” and by 1940 he was working as a self-employed music teacher in Chicago. White was the author of Piano Tuning and Allied Arts, Theory and Practice of Piano Construction, The Player Piano Up-To-Date, and other books relating to the piano. He attended the January 1945 Hounds dinner, according to April 1946 Baker Street Journal article which referred to him as the “musicologist.” White’s article “Sherlock Holmes and the Equal Temperment” was published in Vol. 1, Number 1 of the Baker Street Journal, where he signed himself as “Mus Doc.”  He wrote “Dr. Watson and the Peerage” for the January 1947 Journal and later that year, the April 1947 issue refers to him in the “The Editor’s Common Place” as Dr. William Braid White. The “Whodunit” which appeared in the July 1947 issue lists him as “Mus. Doc., Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, is President of the Pianoforte School of Technology, associated with the Chicago Musical College.” He contributed a number of articles to their publication The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America from 1929 through 1941. White died in Chicago IL in 1959.

Thomas Willshire

Tom Willshire was born May 2, 1960 in Milwaukee, WI.  He encountered Sherlock Holmes first, like many of his generation, by viewing the Rathbone/Bruce films with his father and grandmother.  To avert the approaching curse of adolescence, Frank Willshire presented his son the two-volume Doubleday edition of the Canon for his twelfth Christmas.  While studying journalism at Marquette University he began working part-time in a bookstore, commencing a lifetime (so far) career in the book trade.  While managing a bookshop in Chicago, he became active in local Scions, including Hugo’s Companions which met near his workplace at Binyon’s Restaurant (of fond memory).   He was a co-founder and the first Commissioner, of the Scotland Yarders.  Don Izban tapped him to help with the logistics on the first Canonical Convention and Caper.  A 1990 professional move took him to New York to work in the corporate offices of Barnes & Noble and subsequent positions at Random House, HarperCollins, and Oxford University Press.  Since 2011 he has been head of trade sales in the Americas for Cambridge University Press.  Tom left organized Sherlockian activities for more than a decade to raise his young sons after the death his wife.  His boys apparently fully grown, he became active again in the local Scions: the Epilogues of New Jersey and the Priory Scholars.  His work for Cambridge takes him frequently to England where he prowls modern London seeking Sherlockian landmarks well aware that it is NOT “always 1895.”  His most lasting Sherlockian achievement is in the raising of his older son, Henry, as a knowledgeable follower of the Great Detective in his own rite.  With the good example of his own father before him, Tom began Henry’s education by presenting him with a (single volume) copy of the Doubleday edition, on his 12th Christmas.

John “Jack” Wilson

John Norton Wilson was born on October 27, 1933 in Pekin Hospital in central Illinois.  He spent his 37-year career as a mathematics teacher at various high schools in the Illinois public school system, most notably Amos Alonzo Stagg High School in Palos Hills, from which he finally retired.  He was an avid solver of crossword puzzles, sudokus, and literally any kind of codes, brainteasers or word puzzles.  This is probably why he became such an enthusiastic Sherlockian, since Holmes is also a brilliant problem solver!!  I am not quite sure of the exact date when he was honored with becoming a “Hound”, but he had been one ever since I had first known him in 1992.  He was also a member of Altamont’s Agents and Hugo’s Companions of which he was their treasurer for a few years.  He was a constant student and dearly loved his books, airplanes and ME–his beloved wife of eleven years, whom he always referred to as “The Woman”.  He was a very intelligent man who had an equally sharp wit, being quite unable to pass up the telling of a pun or a clever limerick! He died in Advocate Christ Hospital, in Oak Lawn, on September 10, 2010.   Having been a proud Korean War veteran, his ashes are interred at Abraham Lincoln Military Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois, with the inscription reading on the vault…”It is always 1895″…a most important phrase to any die hard Sherlock Holmes enthusiast!
Submitted with great love and sincerity by Mrs. April R. Wilson.

Sewell Peaslee Wright

Sewell Peaslee Wright was born in August 7, 1897 in Butler PA.  He went to high school in Toledo and worked for the Toledo Blade according to his World War I draft card. He worked as a wireless operator in Portland ME before moving to Springfield IL where he initially worked in advertising before taking a position as a copy chief.  The website Michael May’s Adventureblog states that Wright was a “ journalist, advertising writer, radio operator and Pulp writer who penned westerns, horror, mystery as well as Science Fiction.” Wright’s science fiction series were “the space patrol recollections of Captain John Hanson [which] read today like the adventures of Captain Kirk” (Michael May); the entire series were published in the magazine Astounding Stories. He wrote numerous short stories, sometimes using the pseudonym Tom Andrews.Wright attended the January 1945 Hounds dinner as reported in the Vol. 1, No.2 of the Baker Street Journal. He edited the book Chicago Murders which was published in 1945. Among the contributors were his fellow Hounds Vincent Starrett and Otto Eisenschiml.  Wright died on March 31, 1970 in Saint Lucie FL.

Walter Yust

Walter M. Yust was born May 16, 1894 in Philadelphia, PA.  After his graduation from the University of Pennsylvania in 1917, where he belonged to Phi Beta Kappa and served as managing editor of his college yearbook, he went to work for the Philadelphia Evening Ledger as a journalist. His career took him to newspapers in New Orleans as well as other cities.  Yust became the literary editor of the Philadelphia Public Ledger in 1926 and three years later, his review of the 14th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica brought him “to the attention of its president” (Encyclopedia Britannica) who hired him in late 1930 as advertising manager for the group. He was named associate editor two years later and in 1938 began his long tenure as editor in chief. Yust retired February 22, 1960, having served in that position “longer than any of his predecessors” (Encyclopedia Britannica) and planned to continue as an editorial consultant. He died February 29, 1960 in Evanston, IL, only one week after his retirement, and is buried in Graceland Cemetery.

Philip Zaferopulos

Philip Nick Zaferopulos was born March 9, 1937 in Chicago, IL. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from Ripon College.

Henry Zecher

Henry Zecher is a former newspaper sports writer and Federal government human resources specialist, and has been a free-lance writer for years. Before he met William Gillette, his most notable works were his evaluation of German Reformer Martin Luther’s impact on the English Bible (first published in Christianity Today Magazine, October 23, 1983), and his analysis of the Papyrus Ipuwer, claimed by controversial scholar Immanuel Velikovsky to have been an Egyptian version of the plagues on Egypt described in the Book of Exodus (published in The Velikovskian, A Journal of Myth, History and Science, Vol. III, No. 1, January 1997; rather than being the same story told by Moses, Henry demonstrated that Moses had written Act I of the great drama and escaped with his people across the Red Sea, while Ipuwer wrote Act II, describing the aftermath: the devastation wrought by the Plagues and the foreign invasion that followed). Henry’s first book was William Gillette, America’s Sherlock Holmes (Xlibris, 2011), a biography of one of America’s greatest actors and the man who both created our visual image of Sherlock Holmes, and demonstrated how actors would portray him for the following century. Now retired from Federal service, Zecher is a full-time free-lance writer and frequent speaker working on his next project and helping wife Gay with her snap-on jewelry business. He and Gay live in Waukesha, Wisconsin with their Maine Coon cat, Smokey. Other writings can be read on his website.

Ernest Bloomfield Zeisler

Ernest Bloomfield Zeisler was born August 23, 1899 in Chicago, IL .Zeisler grew up in a home where his parents – an attorney father and concert pianist mother – hosted salons for well-known philanthropists, physicians, authors, civic leaders, musicians, actors, educators and politicians, including William Jennings Bryan.  He attended the University of Chicago and was a member of the Department of Mathematics 1919-1922 when he received his Ph.D. in Mathematics. In 1931 he co-authored The Law of Gravitation in Relativity, and in 1955 he wrote Foundations of Logic and Mathematics. His correspondence with Albert Einstein is held at the Albert Einstein Archives in Jerusalem. Einstein reportedly said that Zeisler was “one of the few people in the world who understood his theory of relativity.” (Hall, pg. 5) He became a physician with a practice in Internal Medicine from 1929-1959 as well as an associate professor of medicine at the University of  Illinois School of Medicine. He contributed to medical literature, including “A Case from Sophocles” and “The Great Salk Vaccine Fiasco” and  published Electrocardiography: Principles and Practice.  Turning to ano
ther subject, his 1956 book The Haymarket Riot, focused on his father Sigmund Zeisler’s role as co-counsel for the Haymarket case defendants. His papers pertaining to the book are kept at the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives. He also contributed to The American Journal of Economics and Sociology. Zeisler served as Treasurer of the Cliff Dwellers Club, president of the Chicago Literary Club and was a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestral Association. He was also a chess enthusiast; in 1963 the U.S. Open Chess Tournament was named the Dr. Ernest B. Zeisler Memorial Tournament in tribute to him. In 1953 he published Baker Street Chronology, a work that remains a standard in dating the Canon and includes a preface written by Vincent Starrett. The July 1953 Baker Street Journal called it a “volume of brilliant scholarship.” He was a frequent contributor to the Journal, with articles and commentaries, as well as to The Sherlock Holmes Journal. The October 1955 Journal referenced Zeisler as a “doctor of philosophy and noted scholar.” He received the investiture of “The Golden Pince-Nez” from The Baker Street Irregulars in 1957.  Zeisler died on December 27, 1962 in Chicago IL.
