Society to honor birth of Sherlock Holmes

March 01, 2004

In celebration of Sherlock Holmes' 150th birthday, members of Watson's Tin Box, a local scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars, will introduce visitors to Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. March 25 at the Miller branch library.

"We are a Sherlockian society. We study and talk about and have fellowship with other people who like Sherlock Holmes stories," said society member Ralph Adams, who lives in Ellicott City and volunteers at the library.

The group does not do detective work in the style of Holmes.

"That's already been done 100 years ago." Adams said.

One or more characters from the stories will appear at the library to discuss their experiences and opinions about Holmes.

Registration for the program begins on March 11. Information: 410-313-1950.
