  GrahamClayton: Robert R. Coveyou (1915 - 20 Feb 1996)
American mathematician who was a health physicist with the Manhattan Project from 1943 during WW2. Afterwards, he completed an M.S. degree in Mathematics, and joined the Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a research mathematician. He became a recognized expert in pseudo-random number generators. In the 1950s-60s, he was very active in the civil rights movement in Oak Ridge, dedicated to racial equality and spear-headed effort to desegregate a local high school. An excellent tournament chess player, he was Tennessee State Champion eight times.

  Phony Benoni: From Paul Hugo Little's report on the 1937 ACF Congress in the September 1937 Chess Review:

<"Typical journalistic accuracy in the daily press caused a few smiles. One paper printed this statement: 'Other favorites to win or place high in the competition are Herman Steiner of Los Angeles and R R Coveyou of Detroit.' This came as interesting news to Coveyou. With the story of printed a photograph of Coveyou labelled 'The creases in his brow speak for themselves'. Probably the editor figured that if Coveyou's brow was wrinkled, he must be a favorite.">
