|Aug-28-12|| ||thomastonk: <Stonehenge> Yes, of course, but since I mentioned Euwe ... ;-)|
<sneaky pete> Wow! Even in Gaige's Chess Personalia there is only his birthday. Thank you very much. I have now tried to find a death notice in some newspapers of 1971, but without success. Then I found "De Hoge Raad in persoon: benoemingen in de Hoge Raad der Nederlanden 1838-2002" by P. J. van Koppen and J. ten Kate at Google-books, but the period after 1945 is not shown. :-(
