"a man of good birth and excellent education" [FINA]
Today is a special day in the date-books of Sherlockians and Doyleans from around the world. On May 22, 1859, Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born.
You may recall that on this date last year, Google presented one of its holiday logos, to honor his most famous creation. What will the world have in store this year for Conan Doyle?
We suppose he's still be honored every day, since his name is still associated with the immortal Sherlock Holmes, Brigadier Gerard, Professor Challenger and Harry Houdini, not to mention the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Society and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Collection at the Toronto Public Library.
Happy Birthday, Sir Arthur!
For the many, many hours of pleasure that he's given to me and millions like me, a hearty happy birthday to the great Sir Arthur. May the lustre of his creations never dull.
