2770RE: [sherlock holmes society of india] Questions on the Canon
- Jun 12, 2009Sherlockians reading about Joseph Stangerson might like to know that Holmes
wrote 'A Study In Scarlet' without at that time ever having visited America
- he read up on America in the Encyclopaedia Britannica and from newspaper
articles. The name 'Stangerson' seems to have been an adaptation from the
real-life case of the disappearance of a German baker named Urban Napoleon
Stanger on 12 November 1881 in the East End of London.

dead body was discovered ?"
