Ken Whyld
on the title page of CHESS, Nov. 1998



It is our association’s concern to bring together the information scattered worldwide from collectors of chess literature and extensive chess libraries, and thus give the public access to it. Moreover we support book publications and articles in magazines which cover a chess historical background or enlarge the bibliography of chess literature. Our long-term goal is the complete bibliographical recording of the chess literature in an online database.

The Ken Whyld Association was founded at Brunswick in November, 2003, and it was named after the English chess historian Kenneth Whyld (* March 6th, 1926 † July 11th, 2003) who died in the same year.
