Nobel laureate and Mayo Clinic physician Dr. Philip S. Hench and his wife, Mary Kahler Hench, developed one of the most significant collections of Sherlockiana in the world. Together, they explored the life, times, and places of Sherlock Holmes, including the area near Meiringen, Switzerland and the nearby Reichenbach Falls- site of the epic struggle between Holmes and his nemesis, Professor Moriarty.

This exhibit, mounted in conjunction with the triennial conference “Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Place,”  displays some of the remarkable material gathered by Dr. and Mrs. Hench as they researched the locales associated with Holmes and the story of “The Final Problem.” They helped create what is today a most wonderful travel destination for Holmes enthusiasts.
