Sherlock Holmes Exhibit Duarte Library

Happy birthday Sherlock Holmes!  The famed sleuth’s birthday is said to be January 6, 1854, as deduced by scholars after researching many literary clues.  It is on that date each year that Sherlockians gather to celebrate and the Baker Street Irregulars converge on an iconic Holmes spot such as 221B Baker Street in London.

A fictional character created by Scottish author and physician Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes is known for his astute logical thinking and his ability to adopt a variety of disguises.  He is thought of as a real person by his fans, after first appearing in 1887 in four novels and 56 short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.  Over the years, Holmes has become even more popular with dozens of new stories, television series and movies, offshoots of originals stories, and even new books characterizing those traits for which he is admired.
