Jul-24-12  thomastonk: Dr Moquette has been the president of the Nederlandse Schaakbond from 1913 until 1919. It seems that he was not so active as a player during this time. Therafter he played at least twice the cup tournament in Scheveningen (1920 and 1921).

I would like to know any kind of information on his life, his dead and chess activities. In particular, I would like to know of which chess clubs he was a member since he lived in the Hague. Thank you!

  Stonehenge: Moquette family: (click on 'bekijk').

<he lived in the Hague>

Yes, but he has also lived in Utrecht, Nijverdal and Rotterdam (Noordsingel 112).

Jul-24-12  thomastonk: <Stonehenge> Thank you very much!!

I knew the address in Rotterdam, which is from earlier days, isn't it? What I know about his profession: in 1927 he became the director of an institution (schoolartsendienst Den Haag), when he worked there already for 17 years. Hence I assumed that he lived since about 1910 in the Hague. During his time as president of the NSB I know this for sure.

  Stonehenge: Yes, he died in The Hague (Laan van Meerdervoort 1212).

Jan-10-14  Karpova: News from the Nederlandse Schaakbond on how Dr. Moquette became its president in 1913:

There was a dispute between secretary (<Schriftführer>) J. H. de Ruwe and several boardmembers, which led to the resignation of H. Gouwentank (president, <Vorsitzender>), S. Weisfeldt, Strick van Linschoten, Dr. Moquette and C. L. Udo de Haes (treasurer, <Schatzmeister>) from the directorate.

On April 27, an extraordinary general meeting (<außerordentliche Generalversammlung>) was held in Utrecht and a settlement was reached.

The new directorate was elected: Dr. J. J. R. Moquette of The Hague (president, <1. Vorsitzender>), J. Strick van Linschoten (vice-president, <2. Vorsitzender>), S. Weisfeldt of Amsterdam (secretary, <1. Schriftleiter>), A. Vermeer (vice-secretary, <2. Schriftleiter>), Udo de Haes (treasurer, <Schatzmeister>) and W. van Koony-Voorburg (assessor/observer, <Beisitzer>). The Federation expressed its gratitude to Mr. J. H. de Ruwe for his merits.
