The Afghanistan Perceivers of Oklahoma is a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars and was founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 8, 1974 by the late Stafford Davis, BSI and Richard Johnson, also deceased. The Society takes its name from the first observation by Sherlock Holmes to Dr. John H. Watson in A Study in Scarlet. Members are dedicated to keeping green the memory of Sherlock Holmes and meet twice a month; a luncheon on the first Friday and an evening soiree at a local pub on the fourth Thursday. In addition, the Perceivers celebrate four special events each year: Sherlock Holmes’ birthday in January, Queen Victoria’s Birthday in May, The Fatal Battle of Maiwand in July, and the Feast of the Blue Carbuncle in December. The Afghanistan Perceivers were instrumental in naming Holmes Peak after the famous detective. Holmes Peak is located in Blackdog Township, Osage County, about five miles from downtown Tulsa and is the highest point in Osage County, Oklahoma.
