"In glancing over my notes of the seventy odd cases" [SPEC] 

One of the most well-known societies in the Sherlockian / Holmesian world is The Sherlock Holmes Society of London. Originally founded in 1934, the society lost steam for a few years and was permanently re-incorporated in 1951.

Nicholas Utechin, BSI ("The Ancient British Barrow") joins I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere to discuss the society's remarkable history, including its founding, exciting events and expeditions, and its commitment to remaining a membership-based organization.

You won't want to miss Nick's announcement of something very special coming up for members on May 15.

The Canonical Couplet quiz winner this time will win a copy of This August and Scholarly Body: The Society at 70.  Answers are due by May 14, 2021 at 11:59 a.m.
