The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh of Irish ancestry, and came from an artistic family, with a father who was a painter and a grandfather who was a cartoonist.

Like Dr. Watson, who narrates almost all of the roughly sixty stories featuring Sherlock Holmes, Doyle was a physician. At medical school he studied under Dr. Joseph Bell who was renowned for his powers of forensic observation.

After medical school Doyle took two voyages as a ship’s surgeon where he met people from every part of the British Empire which gave him valuable insight for his stories. Later in his life he became very interested in spiritualism and politics, topics that surfaced in his later works. In fact it was for The Great Boer War (1902) justifying British colonial policy, that Doyle was knighted.
