A contributor to George Koltanowski's California Chess News and Chess Digest in the late 1940s, forerunners of the California Chess Reporter, where he sometimes translating articles by Max Euwe as Dutch was his native tongue, Dr. Ruys also had a strong interest in endgame studies as he favored the artistic side of the game.
Frank Ruys will be remembered as one of the great gentlemen of California chess whose enthusiasm for the game and life never waned.
