"He handed each of them a shilling" [STUD]We're live blogging from the annual dinner of the Baker Street Irregulars. It's been quite an evening - one that we'll leave to others to recap in what is sure to be a much more circumspect manner.
It is our pleasure to share with you the names of the newly-Investitured members of the BSI. Mike Whelan, the current "Wiggins" of the BSI, takes great joy in this portion of the program - when he bestows an Irregular Shilling on a number of Sherlockians present at the dinner.
This year's Honors List includes:
- "Harold Stackhurst" - Warren Randall
- "Lady Clara St. Simon" - Dayna McCausland
- "Enoch J. Drebber" - Mike Homer
- "Henri Murger" - Mike Berdan
- "The Soup Plate Medal" - Maggie Schpak
- "The Swedish Pathological Society" - Mattias Bostrom
- "Eliza Barrymore" - Elaine McCafferty
Congratulations to all!
And congratulations to the awardees of the newly-minted (and hansome) Editors' Medal: Peter Blau, Steven Doyle, Mitch Higurashi, and Bill Hyder!
Congratulations indeed! Trebles all round?

Can you give us any updates on the Beacon Society Award that was voted on earlier in the day?

You are providing a great service to the Sherlockian world with this blog. I look forward to each edition. Many thanks!

Not to be pedantic, but isn't it "Henri Murger"?
Murger it is. My error just shows the dangers in blogging "live" and relying the small keypad on a PDA.
Could there be a small bio on each of the new Irregulars going forward? Sometimes we don't know the people.
Congratulations to all, and thanks!
