Inaugurating a new department in pursuit of Old Irregular Robert G. Harris's description of the spirit of the early BSI annual dinners, we shall post occasional items to enliven the discussion. First on the docket is the recent debate about "Ronald Knox: Fact or Fiction?" conducted at the University of Minnesota Libraries' Sherlock Holmes Collections two weekends ago, between me and Dr. Richard Sveum of Minnetonka, Minn. The department can be accessed from the website's Welcome page, and new content will be announced both there and here. Comments on the debate posted here will be added to its text at the website as well. A direct link to this stirring debate is below.
