“For three hours we strolled about together” [RESI] 

As we continue our look at some of the early Baker Street Irregulars associated with The Baker Street Journal (we began with its publisher Ben Abramson in Episode 269), we turn to Christopher Morley.

Morley was the right man at the right time with the right attitude, and Steven Rothman, BSI, 2s. ("The Valley of Fear") is the foremost expert on this legend of the BSJ.

We look at Morley's early life, his influences, his literary works, and his popularity leading up to and through the time of the establishment of Sherlockian societies.

There are Sherlockian news headlines and the ever-present Canonical Couplet. Did you win last time? Will you win this time? The winner will receive something Morley-esque.
