Harrison “Terry” Hunt was Senior Curator of History and Supervisor of Historic Sites for the Nassau County Department of Parks until his retirement in 2008. He developed an interest in Christopher Morley as part of his job, which included overseeing The Knothole, Morley’s writer’s retreat in Christopher Morley Park. Linda and Terry have researched Christopher Morley in archives as close as the Bryant Library and Stony Brook University and as far afield as Austin, Texas. They have given numerous talks about the author and his family. The Hunts are authors of a book about the early members of the Sherlock Holmes society The Baker Street Irregulars, which was founded by Morley and included many of his friends.
