Administrative History

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, best known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, became involved in the occult and Spiritualism. After 1918 he and his family traveled abroad, especially to Australia and America on psychic lecture tours. The postcard in this collection is from that period. The family enjoyed Canada as well and spent time there. Perhaps that is the reason the postcard is addressed to Oglethorpe University, GA, Canada instead of USA.


One postcard, possibly postmarked 1920, sent to Oglethorpe University. The printed portion reads: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Is Absent in Australia.
