The Society welcomes Michael J. Quigley to Charter Membership. He is a member of numerous Sherlockian organisations, including:
» The Red Circle of Washington, D.C.
» The Six Napoleons of Baltimore
» Watson’s Tin Box of Ellicott City
» The Sherlock Holmes Society of London
» Baker Street Builders
» The Beacon Society

Mr Quigley credits his interest in Watsonia and Sherlockiana to a gift of The Annotated Sherlock Holmes he received from his grandmother in 1980, thereby beginning a lifelong adventure with Sherlock Holmes. From Holmes, he learned how to become a keen observer of mere trifles that have served him well in the world of human intelligence. Quigley formalized his love of the Grand Game in 2009 when he joined several scion societies of the Baker Street Irregulars, including the Red Circle of Washington, DC; the Six Napoleons of Baltimore; and Watson’s Tin Box. He is also the founder of a new scion society, the Diogenes Club of Washington, DC (an invitation only Sherlockian scholarly scion for present and former government employees and service members of the Armed Forces).
