Episode 124: Replay - To Keep the Memory Green

I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere show

Summary: "seared into my memory" [SPEC]  Richard Lancelyn Green, BSI ("The Three Gables"), who died in March 2004, was the world's leading expert on the life and works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He amassed one of the finest collections of Conan Doyle, and specifically, Sherlock Holmes material in private hands and had intended to produce a three-volume biography on Conan Doyle. He was not yet 30 when he co-edited the towering A Bibliography of A. Conan Doyle in 1983. He served a term as Chairman of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. His tragically early death was mourned by both friends and those who knew of him only by reputation, and it was decided that a collection of essays should be brought out in his honor and memory. We interview co-editors Nicholas Utechin, BSI ("The Ancient British Barrow") and Steven Rothman, BSI ("The Valley of Fear") on the resulting volume, To Keep the Memory Green. While this is a previously released episode, there are a few more interesting tidbits of information, including a July sale being held by the BSI Press.
