The Westminster Gazette
From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
The Westminster Gazette was a liberal London newspaper that ran from 31 January 1893 to 31 January 1928. According to the British Library's "Concise History of the British Newspaper in the Nineteenth Century" The Westminster Gazette was launched on 1893 and merged with The Daily News in 1928.
In 1895 Doyle traveled to Egypt. While he was there Doyle witnessed the conflict between the British and the dervishes and became war correspondent for The Westminster Gazette. He published a total of eight articles between 1 April 1896 and 11 May 1896. In 1900 Doyle began writing letters to the editor of The Westminster Gazette. Most of them were published between 26 February 1900 and 9 January 1901. He had two more letters published in that paper on 16 February 1922 and 22 November 1926.
Between 1896 and 1926, the gazette published 8 articles and 7 letters written by Arthur Conan Doyle.
