  MissScarlett: This is Percy (not Perry) Williams Bridgman, Nobel Prize winner in Physics and all-round brainbox:

He played four times for Harvard in the annual intercollegiate <C.H.Y.P.> contests, being on first board in 1903-05, leading them to a hat-trick of victories. If he'd stuck around for 1906, he could have played Columbia's Capablanca.

He played sixth board in the American (CHYP) vs. Oxbridge universities' cable match in March 1903, losing to Bertram Goulding Brown as the Brits triumphed 3.5-2.5.

The Boston Post of December 8th 1903, p.5, has a report of a Jacques Mieses' simul (+10 -6 =2), where Bridgman was one of the victors.

The <ACB>, May 1906, p.85, notes he drew Maroczy in a simul given before thirty of Boston's finest.
