  Benzol: Bruce R Anderson
Born 4th September 1948
He was New Zealand Champion 1967-68.
Feb-20-07  AlanWilkinson: Bruce was also a NZ Schoolboy champion and a stalwart of the Canterbury Chess Club in Christchurch. We were good buddies as students but I haven't seen him for many years.

He was a very strong player both tactically and strategically. He later took up Contract Bridge and was also NZ championship grade in that.
