“a series of lessons with the greatest for the last” [REDC] 

The BSI Press continues its Professions Series in 2020, this time with Education Never Ends: Education, Educators, and the Sherlockian Canon. And we sat down with Marino C. Alvarez, Ed.D., BSI ("Hilton Soames") and Timothy S. Greer, BSI ("Ragged Shaw"), editors of the volume.

They schooled us on all of the ways that education plays a role in the Sherlock Holmes stories, from evil-natured teachers to those who would literally give up their life for a student. We journeyed through the city and country, and from elementary (ha!) through university life.

We followed up on the Canonical Couplet that we did live in the last episode, and in this episode our prize is an edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes with an introduction by Eric Ambler from 1974. Answers are due by 11:59 pm EDT on April 29, 2020.
