Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859 – 1930) was a Scottish writer and a medical doctor. As a young medical student, he was most impressed and influenced by one of his teachers, Dr. Joseph Bell. The good doctor was a master at observation, logic, deduction, and diagnosis. All these qualities were later to be found in the persona of the celebrated detective Sherlock Holmes. Although, Doyle wrote on wide range of topics both fictional and non-fictional with over 200 stories and articles published, none of his works were as well-received as his series of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ stories.
