Our Inquisitor, Denny Dobry, is back with another of his killer quizzes – as always, each quiz will be on the featured story of the month.  This month is A Study In Scarlet.

1. Name three institutions at which Dr. Watson learned his trade.

2. Of what Scarlet-eyed creature was Drebber apparently fond?

3. Okay Numismatists – What was the approximate equivalent of Watson’s 11s/6p income in 1881 and 2011 US Dollars?

4. What did Watson have for breakfast on March 4th?

5. Where did Watson meet Stamford?

6. Drebber’s landlady had trouble avoiding regurgitating what?

7. In the London venue of STUD, death arrives in three different ways, one method is found twice. Name the three different ways.

8. This reference is likely to a Pennsylvania venue.

Good luck! We’ll have the answers posted towards the end of May.
