  GrahamClayton: Glen Gibbs (1935-2010). Gibbs graduated in Law in the University of Adelaide.

He spent the majority of his life drafting legislation in Australia and Hong Kong. He was working in Hong Kong and President of the Hong Kong Chess Association in 1968, which explains why he played for them at the Lugano Olympiad.

He moved to Tasmania in the early 1980's, and was a much-loved and respected member of the chess community in the Apple Isle.

The Glen Gibbs Memorial Award has been created thanks to the generosity of Maria Gibbs (Glen's wife) with assistance from the Tasmanian Chess Association. In Glen's honour financial assistance will be available to one junior player per year to help them compete in the Australian Junior Championship; the winner also receives a medallion and their name is engraved on a perpetual honour board. The award may only be won once by any player.

From 2012 onwards it is envisaged that the winner will be determined by performance in specified tournaments.
