Born In Bournemouth

12.23.05 | 8 Comments

I know somebody on the ol’ blogroll is from/lives in Bournemouth, though offhand I can’t remember which one it is.

In any case, I keep tripping over Bournemouth references lately. First I read “The Greyling Crescent Tragedy” in Ellery Queen’s year-end anthology for 1967, in which a key scene takes place in Bournemouth. But it’s by John Creasey, who was so prolific he most likely used every municipality in Great Britain, and probably more than once.

Then I was reading about the first woman to head a major symphony orchestra, in Baltimore. She previously wielded the baton in Bournemouth. I’m guessing Baltimore was a step up.

And You Only Live Twice is on TV right now, with character actor Charles Gray in a small role (NOT “A Criminologist”). So I looked him up at IMDB; he was born in Bournemouth in 1928, and died of cancer in 2000.
