[what is this?]
From Donna, daughter of Carl Grossguth:

"Carl Grossguth was my father. Graham Clayton wrote on one of the pages here that Carl died at age 26 in a car accident. That is incorrect. I have his death certificate, and he died of suicide at age 26. I am his firstborn daughter. I found this fascinating to see the game here that Carl played all those years ago. I was told by other family members that he was an excellent Chess player."
