Quoth: Conan Doyle's Daughter warns fo the Dangers of Lesbianism

Even the daughter of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle issued a memo in 1960, warning of "familiarity amongst the cricket and hockey teams" and "constant telephone call making and persistent letter writing" to female comrades. However, Jean Conan Doyle said that women who shared a bed were not necessarily lesbians, as "airwomen have been known to do this for the sake of warmth in very cold weather and in some strata of society it is a common occurrence for sisters and girl friends to share a bed." Still, she advised it must "be stopped immediately."
