Aug-14-17  saintdufus: IM Josef Franzen once reached an impressive rating peak of FIDE 2590, but only in correspondence chess did he gain the GM title.

He's also a highly accomplished geologist:

Aug-14-17  Prugno: Dr. Franzen looks like an exceptionally gifted person in many areas, but I suspect his 2590 was an ICCF and not a FIDE rating.
