He was a not-at-all strident skeptic. ;-)

Quite an accomplished gentleman. I liked his "instant reaction" to the images, "amusement" that they could be taken seriously. The earliest part of the 20th century was a very different time; no one today could seriously think those images were real. Now, if they had appeared on a slice of toasted bread...

Sort of disappointing about Arthur Conan Doyle, though.
