  Karpova: He was in charge of the chess column of the 'Illustrated London News' after Wormald's death.

From page 209 of the March 1888 'Wiener Schachzeitung'

  zanzibar: As <Karpova> sez, plus this:

<We will here remark <en passant> that we have this week received a most delightful visit from Mr. Duffy, the present chess editor of the <London Illustrated News>, as well as the <Westminster Papers>. Mr. Duffy is making a flying visit to the United States, and will return very shortly.>

<Sci Am Suppl v4 (Dec 8, 1877) p1614>

So, he pulled double duty as editor back in 1877.

Please also note, that unlike today, back in 1877 a "flying visit" didn't have the potential of two meanings, but rather, just one.

Sep-14-15  Paarhufer: "If this book has a villain, it was Duffy ..."

  zanzibar: Is there a good photograph or illustration of him?

I found one on Winter's pages, but it's not sourced:

Anybody know where that one came from?

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: I guess Harding used the same illustration on p183, but I couldn't find the source there either, after a quick scan.
Feb-17-18  Hans Renette: See my book on Bird (p. 106) for a photo of Duffy.
