[what is this?]
Walter (or Vlad) Dobrich was an editor of both Chess Canada magazine during 1970-5 (also a founder in the former case) & a Toronto Star chess column until Lawrence Day was recruited to also take over a chess studies section of Charles Crompton in the 1970s (the 2 columns seem to have since merged around that point, & although a bridge column still appears, it seems to become rarer to find the draughts column on their weekend games page). In addition to chess, he also studied backgammon strategy. He won the 1973 Toronto Championship.
