The Lighthouses of Chess
On 23 January the next chess tour of Michael Negele was due, this time to Wijk aan Zee which once again was completely under the spell of the royal game. Only the last part of the trip was very intricate due to some road construction near Beverwijk ...
Let’s first attend to the editorial meeting with Tony Gillam and Michael Negele at the home of Winifred and Bob van de Velde in Amsterdam. The biography of Paul Felix Schmidt will probably go to press in coming June and will be released in August, so the project is now approaching the final stretch.
