The World of Sherlock Holmes
Presented by Tom Brydges
Sherlock Holmes, generally considered the most recognized fictional character of all time, has captivated readers for over a hundred years, and has perhaps never been more alive than he is today.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's sixty Holmes stories have inspired a large, active and continually expanding Sherlockian world which includes not only the original stories, but also movies, radio and TV programs, and books and articles about or in the style of the stories. In addition, there are many biographies describing Doyle's fascinating life (including a visit to Brattleboro), and hundreds of Sherlockian societies (two in Vermont).
Tom Brydges was born in Illinois, holds mechanical engineering degrees from MIT and had a career in industry. He and his wife, Northfield native Ellen Morse, have lived in England and Canada, Corning, NY, and the Boston area. They retired to Hanover, NH, where he founded a Sherlock Holmes Club.
