Honorary Member, Emeritus
John Bennett Shaw
1914 - 1994
Bennett Shaw, "Big Brother" as he was often called, was one of the most
prolific collectors of Sherlockiana known. His collection, now housed
at the University of Minnesota, was so immense that at the time of transport
to Minnesota, it required five trailers. His "Shaw's Basic 100" is
one of the many compilations of Required Readings for Sherlockians and
can be found mirrored from Yoxley Old Place at the Diogenes Club.
Mr. Shaw was also invested in BSI.
