2/11/1912 Roy Fuller is born

February 11, 1912.  Roy Fuller was born this day in England.  He was successful as a corporate lawyer, a poet, and a writer of mysteries.  He died in London at age 79.


  1. I really enjoy this blog. Here’s an upcoming date I stumbled upon while researching a story. (Published in the Shamus Sampler II private eye anthology.)

    March 18, 1990 – Boston’s Isabella Gardner Museum was robbed of artwork valued at approximately half a billion dollars. The strange crime and its many unanswered questions inspired the David Hosp mystery novel Among Thieves. The robbery remains unsolved. A $5 million reward is still available for information leading to the stolen art’s recovery.

    Best wishes,

  2. THanks for the tip, Peter. Unfortunately March 18 is booked for this year, but there's always another year, I hope. Can you give me a source for this info?
