Feb-23-15  Tomlinsky: This is Agnes Stevenson who was four-time British Ladies' Champion and married to Rufus Stevenson editor of the British Chess Magazine.

"She was thrice the Women's World Championship Challenger. She tied for 9-11th at London 1927, took 5th at Hamburg 1930, and took 3rd at Prague 1931.[4] On the way to play in the 1935 Women's World Championship, she left the aircraft in Poznań to complete a passport check. She returned to the aircraft from the front and ran into the propellor and was killed"
