In June of 1923, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as part of a tour promoting his spiritualist cause, stopped over
for a couple days in Calgary. During his stay, he was ensconced at the Palliser Hotel. On the evening
of Wednesday, June 20, 1923, he gave a lecture and slide presentation at the Al Azhar Temple. 
Both of Calgary's daily newspapers managed to cover the event and briefly interview Sir Arthur.
