In Memoriam

CHESS LIFE records with regret the recent passing of several persons, each of whom has contributed to the advancement of CHESS. (Will only list the one Californian. - KHL)

Dudley H. Hosea, of San Diego, California. Noted as a supporter and promoter of chess in his area, the Point Loma Chess Club met in his home. Sven Almgren reports, "That rare soul, a man with a passionate love of the game matched by a vigorous and youthful outlook and a readiness to sacrifice himself in chess promotion. The only problem with him was to keep him from devoting energies to chess that he simply did not have to spare."
