Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Born May 22, 1859 Initiated Initiated: January 26, 1887 Raised Raised: March 23, 1887 Died July 7, 1930 Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born on May 22, 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Doyle was physician and prolific writer, and is best known as the creator of the fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. He is also renown for his contributions as a playwright and novelist in the genre of fantasy, science fiction, crime fiction, romance, historical non-fiction, and poetry. Most notable among his body of works are nine novels featuring the ever popular Detective Sherlock Holmes written from 1887-1927. Aside from his medical and writing career, Doyle was a passionate advocate of justice. He personally investigated a closed case in which he found inconsistencies. His perseverance and zeal for justice lead to the exoneration of two men accused of horrific crimes of which they were innocent. This precedent was in part what lead to the establishment of the Court of Criminal Appeal in 1907, which aided in the successful appeal of another innocent's case in 1928. In 1887 at the age of 27, Doyle was initiated to the fraternity of Freemasons at the Phoenix Lodge No. 257 in Southsea, Hampshire. Present at his initiation was Dr. James Watson who became fast friends with Doyle, and whom became the inspiration of Sherlock Holmes' famous sidekick. Brother Arthur Conan Doyle was called from labor on July 7, 1930 at the age of 71 and is laid to rest at the Minstead Churchyard in New Forrest, Hampsire.
