1990 Colloquium packet
Two colloquia organized and hosted by the Bimetallic Question, one in
1990 and the other in 2001, brought like-minded Sherlockians together
to study of the adventures of the world's first consulting detective.|
An international group of attendees, speakers and guests visited Montreal for scholarly (and other!) presentations, Victorian events and authentic period dinners. In 1990, our guests were greeted by British bobbies, attended a Victorian-costume dinner with appropriate entertainment, and even witnessed the "murder" of one of the speakers who refused to relinquish the podium.
