Nov-30-09  Caissanist: Evaristo Paul Duclós (ca. 1846-1915), the father of Peruvian chess. Originally, from Paris, Duclós learned the game as a teenager in the Café de La Regence, where he started out receiving rook odds from Rosenthal before working his way up to pawn and move. Duclós later emigrated to Peru, where ns 1876 he and Baldemero Reyna founded the Lima chess club, supposedly the first one anywhere in the Americas; the club published the chess magazine "El Ajedrez" in the 1870s and 1880s. Duclós continued to promote chess in Peru until his death in 1915.

More information, including a couple of his Peruvian games, can be found (in Spanish) at To this day, Peru maintains a vibrant chess tradition, one of the strongest in South America.
