He went on to study literature at University of Edinburgh and wrote for the Edinburgh Evening Courant. Meanwhile, Doyle spent seven years at a Jesuit institution followed by a stint at medical school. Both men made their mark in publishing by writing bold and beloved characters that would stand the test of time.
