The Diogenes Club of Washington, DC is one of the newer scions of the Baker Street Irregulars, having been founded just a few months after our own group was formed in 2014. Organized by the 36th Garrideb, Michael J. Quigley, who holds the investiture of “Lord Saltire,” he was inspired to create a challenge coin for his group after he purchased one of the challenge coins that The Fourth Garrideb issued in 2015.

Membership in the Diogenes Club is limited to those that have worked for the government (Federal, state or local) in any capacity. Attendance at Diogenes Club events is open to all Sherlockians.
