Bernard Davies – RIP

Bernard DaviesWith much regret, the Society announces the death on 21 September 2010 of one of its most senior members.

Bernard Davies had been a member of the Society since 1959, and served as Chairman from 1983 to 1986.

He made major studies in the exact identification of the geographic locations of the Sherlock Holmes stories. His choice for the location of 221B Baker Street has not been seriously challenged.

In 2008 the Society published a two-volume edition of his collected writings, under the title “Holmes and Watson Country – Travels in search of Solutions.”

A Memorial Service will be announced in due course.
