Many thanks to the NMSOBC for their sponsorship! The Blue Carbuncle is the local Portland, OR, scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars, and we are very glad to have their support.
The Noble and Most Singular Order of the Blue Carbuncle was founded on January 6th, 1971 and led by James T. Covert; the eleven charter members first met on the campus of the University of Portland. The singular purpose of the Order is to promote, extend, further, advance, encourage, dignify, elevate, and generally improve the study and employment of the Sacred Writings and Sherlockian Studies. The name is taken from “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” published by Arthur Conan Doyle in January 1892. The Society is dedicated to the scholarly pursuit and appreciation of the singular exploits, of the Wisest and Noblest of men, Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
