(born Oct-03-1931, died Feb-22-2000, 68 years old) Yugoslavia (federation/nationality United States of America)

[what is this?]
Dr. Eugene Simeon Martinovsky was born in Skopje, Yugoslavia (now Macedonia). He was twice the Champion of Macedonia, and twice Champion of Skopje, its capital.

He graduated from medical school in 1957. In 1960 he immigrated to England, and in 1962 to the United States, where he became a physician and psychiatrist. He played little chess between 1958 and 1965.

Returning to chess in 1965, he became one of the leading players in Chicago. He co-won the Illinois championship in 1975 (with Edward W Formanek) and won it outright in 1983. He lived in the Detroit area between 1968 and 1972, twice winning the Michigan championship. He also won the U.S. Senior Championship twice. He was awarded the title of FIDE Master.

Martinovsky was even more successful in correspondence chess. He won the 2nd Correspondence Chess League of America (CCLA) Championship (1976-78) and was the co-winner (with Marc Lonoff) of the 8th CCLA Championship (1990-93). He played in four World Correspondence Chess Championship semifinals, scoring about 50%.
