Doyle By Abigail Thompson
and Shannon Roberts Who he Influenced:
Agatha Christie and other detective fiction authors,
Edgar Rice Burroughs,
Gaston Leroux, Umberto Eco He went to Edinburgh University as a medical student and
received a doctor of medicine degree in 1885. But in his spare time he wrote short stories These short stories where published
anonymously in magazines One of his anonymous stories "Habakuk Jephson's Statement"
had become a success so he began to dedicate himself to writing He was given a knighthood in 1902, the same year as when he published "The Hounds of Baskerville" He did not write only novels, he also wrote 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories, and many other books. He also worked as a writer, journalist and general public figure. He worked as a surgeon on a whaling boat, and also as a medical officer on a steamer traveling between Liverpool and West Africa. After he had finished his medical career, he settled down in Portsmouth on the English South Coast and divided his time between medicines and writing. His first Sherlock Holmes book
was called "A study in Scarlet" Forensic science, commonly known as forensics is the application of science to law.
Forensic Scientists try to find and analyze the truth using clues found on crime scenes.
They analyze physical evidence found either on a victim or at the scene of a crime, and to compare it to evidence found on the suspect. Them they provide expert facts and clues to help in a court of law.
Forensics has come a very long way since its recorded beginnings in the 700s. Records show that the Chinese used forensics first, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle played a large part in introducing forensics through his character Sherlock Holmes. He solved the two cold cases about George Edalji and the second about Oscar Slater The Sherlock Holmes books unveiled an entire new perspective on Forensic Science which at the time wasn't very efficient. His main character Sherlock Holmes could take one glance at you and tell your entire life story. In the books Doyle explained various methods on how Sherlock worked this out. These theory's are what we still sometimes use today in Forensics. Forensic Science and how Arthur Conan Doyle introduced it to society. Conclusion He introduced a lot of the Forensic Science that is used nowadays in looking for people who have broken the law. It has helped a lot of victims to find the people who have committed a crime against them, and give clues in court to find the right man guilty.
Without Arthur Conan Doyle's further insight into forensics, it may never have got as far as this and a lot of important cases may never have been solved.
