“A Lady Ventures into the Sacred Precincts”:
Women on the Periphery of the BSI, 1940–1960.
By Julie McKuras and Sonia Fetherston.
Women have contributed to Sherlockian studies and societies from the beginning. The Baker Street Journal included women authors in more than 90% of its issues from 1946–1960. Yet women often did not receive the recognition they deserved, including membership in the BSI, in the originally male-dominated world of Sherlockians.
This year’s Annual highlights the scholarship and accomplishments of some of those women of Baker Street who paved the path for today’s women Sherlockians.
