[what is this?]
Tihomil Drezga (also Dresga or Drezza) was born October 12, 1903, in Šibenik, Croatia. He studied international law at the Sorbonne in Paris and received a doctorate of law.

He won in the Lites Chess Club in Paris (1927/28), won both games he played for the French team at the Hague, 1928 Olympiad, and finished 1st (ahead of Eugene Znosko-Borovsky) in the 5th Paris Championship in 1929.

After spending some years in France, Dr Drezga returned to Croatia. He placed 2nd at Zagreb 1934, and took 2nd, behind Petar Trifunovich, at Zagreb 1935.

During World War II, he was a professor at the Faculty of Law in Zagreb from 1943 to 1945. After the war, he emigrated to Italy in 1947, and then to the United States.

  whiteshark: Frenchmen Dresga scored a perfect 2/2 record at the Hague, 1928 Olympiad and for many years has been sole player to have an all-time 100% Olympic record since he never appeared at the Olympiads again. Nice achievement, given the fact that he has been a completely unknown player.
Jan-17-16  Eastfrisian: Hm ??!! - when is he born 10.12. or 12.10.? Bio and birth date are different.

I've never understood why the DOB should be in the bio anyway. It already says <(born Dec-10-1903, died Aug-1981, 77 years old).>
