“Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who died yesterday, will be for ever associated with the detective novel. He created Sherlock Holmes, and we all know Sherlock Holmes very well indeed. The fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was at one time a politician and latterly a spiritualist will count for nothing compared with his fame as a writer of detective fiction. For detective fiction has flourished exceedingly, and he is its father.”
