|Oct-05-13|| ||Karpova: A small mistake (possible in the original newspaper):|
"New-York Daily Tribune", 1890.12.12
First sentence: <The result of Tuesday’s game in the match between Steinitz and Gusnberg, [...].>
|Oct-05-13|| ||jnpope: <possible in the original newspaper>|
Possible, but unlikely as I would have sic'ed that puppy...off to fix.
Thanks for pointing that out.
|Oct-06-13|| ||paderamo: Sorry if this is the wrong place to post. I have been going through newspapers.com and finding chess columns (ala chessarch). I have found and downloaded a number of interesting columns with games by Kashdan, Fine, Denker, Santasiere, Whitaker, Horowitz, Marshall, and Dake from the early 1930s that are not in chessgames or other online databases. Plus a game Capablanca-Gessner from 1909. Newspapers from Pennsylvania, Nebraska, West Virginia, Canada, and other areas that had newspaper chess columns. I am not sure what I should do with the information and seek guidance. Many thanks.|
|Oct-06-13|| ||jnpope: I would love to know the titles of the newspapers that carried chess columns and/or chess news that you have searched.|
As for new games you can always submit them to this site:

|Oct-06-13|| ||paderamo: Reading Times (Reading, PA) had a chess column from 1932-1934. I have downloaded all of the clippings and have created a spreadsheet of all of the games given. It appears the editor knew Isaac Kashdan. He even had games that would appear in Chess Review the following month. Just started to change from desscriptive to algebraic notation. Nebraska State Journal (Lincoln, Nebraska) had a column which started around 1906 and was still going in the 1920s, including Capablanca simuls in the area. Unfortunately newspapers.com only has 1908-1910 and 1921-1923. I am just starting to explore other papers such as Charleston Daily Mail (Charleston, West Virginia), Winnipeg Tribune (Winnipeg, Canada), Galveston Daily News (Galveston, Texas), Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky), Harrisburg Times (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania), and Lubbock Avalanche-Journal (Lubbock, Texas). Others as well.|
|Oct-06-13|| ||paderamo: Missing Chicago Tribune chess column on chessarch.
The 1875.11.28 column
|Oct-06-13|| ||jnpope: That's great. Thank you very much!|
|Oct-12-13|| ||thomastonk: Good news: Zukertort vs Lipschutz, 1886!|
|Oct-12-13|| ||jnpope: Hooray!|
|Oct-15-13|| ||paderamo: Missing Chess Column; Des Moines Leader (Des Moines, Iowa; 22 December 1901; Page 17:|
My apologies. This is the only way I know how to correspond. As I find a gap at chessarch, I would like to help fill that gap. Plus, I have 199+ columns for Charleston Daily Mail (1931-1937), 215+ for Nebraska State Journal (1908-1910, 1921-1923), 72 for Reading Times (1932-1934), 142+ for San Francisco Chronicle (1898-1899, 1921-1923), and 106+ for Winnipeg Tribune (1930-1931, 1937-1938). The + signifies that there are many more columns. Other papers I have a few marker columns. I just like to scattershoot sometimes. All from newspapers.com.

Thanks again. I love the fills.
The list of newspapers and date ranges are greatly appreciated. I like to think I'll have time to get to it all at some point. I'm still pulling material out of all the free sources available to me and it may take me a few years to get through all of it.
|Oct-20-13|| ||paderamo: Okay. Here are the four missing columns from the Galveston Daily News. Not in the greatest of shape:|
|Oct-21-13|| ||jnpope: Thank you once again. Nice to complete a run.|
|Oct-24-13|| ||paderamo: I came across two games by Pillsbury that are not in chessgames.com or the calbase database. They are Pillsbury-Manson and Pillsbury-Griffin, both in 1904. I could not wait to see if they were in your book that I am ordering.
|Oct-25-13|| ||jnpope: Mechanics' Institute Chess Club? N. J. Manson and L. F. Griffin?|
|Oct-25-13|| ||jnpope: Neither made it into the book. I found a Griffin game (Vienna, 30 moves, 0-1) in the San Francisco Chronicle, 1904.04.10.|
I do not think I've seen the Manson game.
|Oct-25-13|| ||paderamo: http://www.newspapers.com/clip/1568...|
Lovegrove-Pillsbury and Pillsbury-Manson.
I have almost all of the chess columns of the San Francisco Chronicle from 1893-1906 that are available from newspapers.com (about 650 ). Also, 1921-1923 (110 ). Take care.
|Oct-25-13|| ||TheFocus: In the Lovegrove game, the final moves of 30...Qxg7 31.Rxg7 Kxg7 32.Nxd5 1-0 are given in an obituary/tribute article in <Chess Life>, August 20, 1956, pg. 1 & 8 by H.J. Ralston. The article also included Lovegrove's win over Emanuel Lasker.|
|Nov-04-13|| ||paderamo: There is a second Pillsbury-Griffin game in the 1904-04.24 chess column:|
|Nov-05-13|| ||jnpope: Nice finds|
|Nov-09-13|| ||perfidious: In kibitzes today, I observed that Fred Lindsay edited your work on Pillsbury.|
Is Lindsay still active as a player? We met once, at the Toronto International in 1984, though the game itself was unremarkable-a short draw in a quiet line of the QGA.
Fred told me a hilarious story of Florin Gheorghiu fixing the final result at a World Open in those bad old days during the Toronto event; bust-a-gut stuff all the way. Ask him about it sometime.
|Nov-21-13|| ||paderamo: I found 7 games of Pillsbury in Nebraska in 1900:
Only the Joyce game was in your book, found in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Although the Pillsbury vs. Davidson&Reavis game is messed up, I believe I accurately figured it out.
Do you have an addendum for games found after your book was published?
|Nov-22-13|| ||paderamo: 3 games of Pillsbury in Nebraska during 1901. You have the DeFrance game in your book:|
|Nov-23-13|| ||jnpope: I do not have an addendum, but I have been putting together a little Pillsbury "tour" research project which already contains all the games from the Nebraska State Journal. I think I got them from Andy Ansel a few years back... but those from San Francisco were definitely new to me.|
|Dec-01-13|| ||jnpope: Just returned from two weeks in sunny FL. Now I just need to find my motivation... I'm sure I left it here somewhere...|
