[what is this?]
Incorporated on March 4th, 1822, the town of Boston and its bay had been settled for about 200 years prior to its transformation into a city.

Home to both the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1966 and 1970 Pan-Am Intercollegiate wins) and Harvard (1975, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990)(1) chess teams, as well as the Boston Blitz (2), the city is also known for other sports such as the Red Sox baseball(3), Bruins hockey(4) and Celtics basketball(5) teams.

The Weekly Globe (columnist W Curran wrote for the paper (6)), Evening Transcript and Herald newspapers all had chess columns presently or in the past. Globe columnists are Harold Dondis and Christopher Chase (7). Preston Ware and Henry Nathan Stone were two of many members of the active Boston club as early as the 1880s, but unlike the originating date of the city's incorporation, it appears to be uncertain how early the city of Boston chess club(s) existed for.
