in WIKIPEDIA - The Free Encyclopedia.

 

 

An early short notice on Ken Whyld appeared in
CHESS (Jan. 1950, p.83) when he was 23,
see P.C.C. Personalities (No.11)
.

 

 

Ken Whyld together with Anny and Kurt Landsberger at a business dinner.
We quote the latter: "Any time I was in England I met Ken ... In this particular case,
do not know the year but it was many years ago, invited him to join us for a business
dinner and he took the train to be with us. On the opposite side, end of table, was our
European Salesman Paul Sumner (still see him every time I am in Europe and his
nephew is Sting) and across from me our European competitors with whom we used
to be friendly ..." [The date on the photo suggests 21 May 1994.]
