The Nashville Scholars was founded by John Shanks on February 19, 1979. At least five of the present members were charter members of the original club. Below is the very first newsletter published for the 3PP membership. Kay Blocker was one of those who helped put it together, and she is still doing that for the club today. Thanks, Kay!

Jim Hawkins was in Detroit before Valentine's Day and invited Chris Music, Amature Mendicant Society's newest BSI to have dinner at the crew hotel. Chris very kindly (as is the way with these Detroit Sherlockians) bestowed an honorary membership into the Amature Mendicant Society (founded 1946).

A Professor Reflects on Sherlock Holmes by Marino C. Alvarez includes Essays, Travel writing about Reichenbach and Trummelbach Falls, and a Miscellania section. Forewords by Gael Stahl, Billy Fields, and Jim Hawkins, long-standing members of Nashville Scholars of the Three Pipe Problem.

Publisher Steve Emecz says this about Professor Alvarez's book:
"Marino's devotion to and love of Holmes comes through in what is quite a remarkable book. I draw parallels with Dan Andriacco's Baker Street Beat, which the Sherlock Holmes Society of London commented was like having a drink with an old Holmesian friend, and I get the same feeling with this book --- although this book is more scholarly. "

You can purchase the book directly from our Nashville Scholar friends at Classic Specialties.
