Sherlockian.Net: Baker Street Irregulars investitures

The ABC of BSI Investitures & The Florin Society — by Alexian Gregory (

Below the Florin Society roster is an alphabetical listing of all BSI Investitures and their years of bestowal. Investitures are ordered by the first word in them. Thus "Beryl Stapleton" and "Beryl Coronet" are both listed under "B". When there is a title affixed to the name, the name is listed under the title; thus "Lord Bellinger" is under "L," "Sir James Damery" is under "S," and "Dr. James Mortimer" is under "D." The exceptions to this rule are Investitures beginning with "A" "An" "The" "Those" "Mr." "Miss" or "Mrs." These will be listed under the next word. Thus "Study in Scarlet, A" and "Saunders, Mrs." On the other hand Investitures beginning with "Monsieur" or "Mme." are listed under these titles

Where the same Investiture has been re-issued, they are given in the chronological order of bestowal. "Inspector Baynes" and "Wilson Hargreave" have been re-issued with minor variants. Here I bowed to history and have abandoned strict alphabetization in favor of chronological order.

In searching for a particular name, care must be given to all canonical possibilities. Thus one will find neither "Maiwand" nor "Battle of Maiwand, The." Rather, it is listed under "Fatal Battle of Maiwand, The." Similarly one will find "Baron Maupertuis" under "Colossal Schemes of Baron Maupertuis, The"; while "Charlie Peace" is listed under "My Old Friend Charlie Peace." Then we have both "Cardinal Tosca" and "Sudden Death of Cardinal Tosca, The."

The longest Investiture (48 characters) is "The Lighthouse, the Politician, and the Trained Cormorant". The shortest ones are "Billy" and "Cooee." The Investiture with the most unusual punctuation is "Smack! Smack! Smack!" That is also a unique investiture in that it consists of only a repeated word.

Only two Investitures contain numerals: "17 King Edward Street," and "V.V. 341."

Two investitures share the distinction of being composed of only non-English words. They are "Baritsu" and "Englisher Hof."

One investiture consists of a sound that isn't a proper word at all, "Cooee."

The most popular canonical characters who have provided investiture names are those beginning with "Sir" or "Doctor" which have provided 15 investitures each. Then we have 12 "Colonels," 10 "Inspectors," and 9 "Johns." The most issued investitures are "A Case of Identity" and "The Gloria Scott", which have each been awarded five times. In second place we have "The Abbey Grange", "The Final Problem", and "The Three Gables", which have each been given four times.

Strangely, two Investitures are totally non-canonical. They are "The Field Bazaar" and "The Curious Incident of Sherlock Holmes in Japan." And strictly speaking, "St. Bartholomew's Hospital" and "Chemical Laboratory of St. Barts" are not canonical investitures as only "Bart's" and "The Chemical Laboratory" are mentioned in A Study in Scarlet.

Two investitures are simultaneously held by living BSIs. They are "The Hammerford Will Case" and "Vamberry, The Wine Merchant." It appears that "The Old Russian Woman” was simultaneously held by Anatole Chujoy and Lenore Glen Offord until the death of Anatole Chujoy in 1969.

Three men have changed their investitures. George Armstrong gave up "Wiggins" so that Tom Stix could use that title as the head of the BSI. George Armstrong then took the investiture of "John o' Groats." When Tom Stix moved to Norwood, NJ, his investiture changed from "The Case of Bert Stevens" to "The Norwood Builder." Finally Gerald Wachs went from "Godfrey Emsworth" to "Sir James Saunders."

An asterisk before a surname means that this BSI has died.

The Florin Society

The following list is of all those couples in which both spouses have been invested in the BSI. Since each couple has two shillings, I have chosen to call them the Florins -- the two-shilling coin of the late Victorian Era.

This list is alphabetical by surname. The name of the spouse who received the investiture earlier is given first. Where the spouses have different surnames I have alphabetized the couple by the name of the spouse who received the investiture first. Next to each name is the year the shilling was awarded.

In some cases one spouse has died. I have indicated this by an asterisk next to that name.

Two couples hold a special distinction in that both spouses were invested in the same year. They are David Stuart Davies & Kathryn White and Jonathan & Elaine McCafferty. In the case of the latter couple the investitures are even more unusual. Elaine was invested at the BSI Dinner in New York, and Jonathan was invested in London eight days later at the Sherlock Holmes Society of London Dinner.

On the other hand, the Andersons had the longest gap of any couple between their investitures — 40 years!

As with my listing of BSI investitures, all Florin Society information is derived from Peter Blau's list. Any mistakes or omissions on either list are purely mine and should be brought to my attention.

A hearty tip of the deerstalker to all these couples who by their hard work have earned their membership in the Florin Society!
