Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born on May 22, 1859 in Scotland, United Kingdom. Doyle, who studied medicine at Edinburgh University, began writing short stories while continuing his education. His first two stories were published in BR Magazine. After graduating, he worked as a doctor on a ship. He later opened his own practice. Three years later, he was able to complete his doctorate.
Not being much of an expert in medicine, Doyle continued to write his stories while waiting for patients in his room. The most important feature of the “Red File” story, which is the first important work of the author, is that Sherlock Holmes is seen for the first time in this story.
Sherlock Holmes came to life in 56 short stories and 4 novels and became world famous.
He went into depression when he lost his wife and son in 1906, and his two brothers-in-law, brother and nephew in World War I. It is said that he was the one who started the Piltdown man deception, which wreaked havoc in 1912.
