Portsmouth ahoy!

Last Wednesday I travelled to Portsmouth for an interview with the manager of the Richard Lancelyn Green collection. For those of you who don't know - RLG was widely viewed as the foremost expert on both Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes and his collection was donated (by the terms of his will) to Portsmouth Library following his death in 2004.e

Michael Gunton heads up the collection and I spent an hour with him and explained what I was trying to achieve. It certainly seems that they have items which will be of interest but I need to put together a proper "wish list" of requirements before I visit again.


  1. I have been twice to see the exhibits on public display and I have always been impressed by the care that is been bestowed on RLG's amazing collection. I hope you find what you are looking for!

  2. Glad you made it. I hope you find a mountain of treasures to include in your book.
