SAVE THE DATES
Keep your friends close, and your classified documents closer. We hope to see many friends, familiar and new, at the Spring Session of the Priory Scholars, to be held virtually on Sunday, April 25, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm EDT. Class will be held via Zoom, and login information will be sent to all registered participants. See our Meeting Schedule for details and registration information.
The story for this meeting is “The Adventure of the Naval Treaty.” We will be challenged by another of Prof. Raj Pandravada’s brain-fever-inducing quizzes. In preparation, we suggest that you read the story and reflect upon possible topics of discussion:
With so much changing in the world around us, let us continue to gather in friendship and Sherlockiana. We look forward to seeing you!

In case you missed our Summer School class, here is one reporter’s view: “On the Trail of Sherlock Holmes Buffs: Ralph Gardner Jr. goes to a meeting of The Priory Scholars of NYC and gets an earful,” Wall Street Journal,(online, July 27, 2016 and print edition, July 28, 2016)
Created in 1954, The Priory Scholars of NYC (PSNYC) was founded by Chris Steinbrunner and friends and is a Sherlock Holmes scion society. Rising from the slumber of a recent hiatus (2007-2011), PSNYC has been re-booted so as to take full advantage of 21st century technology while at the same time exploring its rich and storied past. Our primary focus is the discussion of the canon, while using supplemental material (both classic papers as well as works-in-progress) to fine-tune/challenge/enhance one’s experience of the 60 primary texts. On the social side we want to heartily welcome back any original PSNYC-ers, as well as invite any recently minted Sherlockians and Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts to what we hope will be a rip-roaring raucously cerebral celebration of Holmes and Watson…with some occasional homework – but the fun kind. Please check back here for updates, upcoming events and information.
