Welcome to Nick Utechin, BSI “The Ancient British Barrow,” SHSL, JHWS

The Society welcomes Mr. Nick Utechin, BSI, as a Founding Member. Mr. Utechin is among the world’s most well-regarded Sherlockians and is a prolific scholar, author and keeper of knowledge concerning the Sacred Canon and the Holmesian dialogue.

Nicholas Utechin joined The Sherlock Holmes Society of  London in 1966, aged 14, and ended up editing The Sherlock Holmes Journal from 1976-2006.   He is an invested Baker Street Irregular (1976) with the title ‘The Ancient British Barrow’.   Nick has contributed to Sherlockian scholarship for many years and enjoys sharing the fact that he is related to Basil Rathbone with those who may or may not be
interested..

In another life, he is a freelance radio broadcaster/producer and was on the staff of the BBC for many years. Other interests include the films of D.W.Griffith (he was once privileged to interview Lillian Gish, at the Savoy Hotel in London) and buying what fine wines he can afford in these ludicrously expensive times.

Please join in welcoming Nick with the Society’s greeting to members:

“You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive.”
