Remembering Jon Lellenberg

In memory of Jon - the Baker Street Irregulars have produced an hour long podcast which can be found via 'I Hear Of Sherlock'

I Hear Of Sherlock

The worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle enthusiasts have lost a giant. Jon Lellenberg, invested in the Baker Street Irregulars as "Rodger Prescott of Evil Memory" in 1974, passed away on April 24, 2021 after a short illness.

Jon's contribution to our hobby was almost too immense for words. He was a confidant and representative of the Conan Doyle Estate for many years, extending back to a close relationship with Dame Jean Conan Doyle. As an author and editor, he contributed to a number of books on Conan Doyle's life, including A Life in Letters and Dangerous Work, both co-edited with Dan Stashower, BSI ("Thurston"). 

Jon's knowledge of early Irregularity and the times in which those Irregulars lived and worked was unrivalled, which made him the perfect person to tackle the BSI Archival History Series. During that time, he was known as the Thucydides of the Baker Street Irregulars.

With four appearances on I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, Jon gave us so much material with which to work, so we pulled some clips from previous episodes to pepper our memories of him.
