Welcome to Susan R. Capell, JHWS “Heather,”  M.A.

The Society extands its warm welcome to long-time Sherlockian and Watsonian, Susan R. Capell of Virginia. Susan has a Master’s in Instructional Systems Technology (Library Science) from Indiana University.

In her delightful letter to the boy in buttons, she writes of her over 400 book collection of Sherlockiana, as well as her extensive collection of scion club publications, and VCRs, DVDs and CDs of all things Holmesian and Watsonian.

She relates two highlights of her years as a Sherlockian: 1) being piped from a conference at the University of Minnesota Sherlock Holmes Collections; and 2) meeting John B. Shaw and touring his home Sherlockiana library in Sante Fe.

Susan has belonged to An Irish Secret Society in New York and to The Game’s Afoot in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Her Cat is named “Irene.” Need we say more?

Please join in a warm welcome and a rousing rendition of the Society’s greeting to members:

“You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive.”
