Reuter reports that Mr. Denis Conan Doyle, a son of the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, died early yesterday at the age of 43 after a heart attack at an hotel near Mysore. At his bedside was his wife, Princess Nina Mdivani. He was a noted big game hunter and frequently went to India as the guest of the Maharajah of Mysore to hunt bison. Tall and heavy jowled he bore a striking resemblance to his father, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, and like him was a firm believer in spiritualism. His wife also shared his faith.
