Actually, not too new. I've been curating the Holmes Collections since 1998. What is new is the endowed curatorship, named in honor of U of M Librarian and Sherlockian E. W. McDiarmid. But thanks for the nod all the same!

Apologies for the inaccuracy, although it is good to hear of a curatorship receiving an endowment. Shows the importance of the position.
