“at this conference” [MAZA]
Burt and Scott ventured to Bloomington, Indiana for the Baker Street Irregulars' conference "Building an Archive" at the Lilly Library at Indiana University. It was an event filled with conversations and exhibitions that delighted all, collectors or not.
The event was the celebration of the BSI Archive officially opening at the Lilly. It featured a walk-through the exhibition "The History of the BSI Through 221 Objects" and a number of panels about the archive, collecting, collectors and more.
We bring you some of the voices from the event, including a number of presenters, the informed staff of the Lilly, the conference organizers, and more. These people include Marsha Pollak, Ray Betzner, Peter Blau, Glen Miranker, Steve Rothman, Mike Whelan ("Wiggins" of the BSI), Hartley Nathan, Michael Kean ("Wiggins"-in-the-wings), Joel Silver, Erika Dowell, and BSI Conferences lead Ross Davies.
