Special Collections and University Archives

Edward Gorey was a mystery novel enthusiast.  He claimed to have read every mystery novel by Agatha Christie at least twice, some three times.  The Awdrey-Gore Legacy was dedicated to Agatha Christie, although it’s unlikely she ever read it, and includes characters based on some of her fictional detectives.
