Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930), British writer and medical doctor, lived in South Norwood with his family 1891-1894. His first wife Louisa, was sometimes called “Touie”; she died in 1906. [Wikipedia entry] According to The Conan Doyle Estate, “the success of Sherlock Holmes made Conan Doyle a public figure in the 1890s, along with stories about medical practice’s social and ethical issues.” The Boer War (1899-1902) “crystalized his thinking about public issues, and role as a public man.” [The Conan Doyle Estate]
