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...|
|Dec-31-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <jnpope> I've posted some information on J F Barry vs Pillsbury, 1899, the mate-in-thirteen game.|
|Jan-02-14|| ||jnpope: Thanks. I've had 11/27 as the date for a while now. I've been working on some new Pillsbury material that I've gathered since for a possible 20th anniversary edition to the Pillsbury book:|
"At the clubrooms Mr. Barry and Mr. Pillsbury played an exhibition game Monday evening. The time clocks were used and all the formalities observed. Mr. Barry played his usual superb game and won the exchange in the middle game. The game was terminated by an announced mate in thirteen moves."
<<Boston Evening Transcript>, 1899.11.28>
|Jan-02-14|| ||Phony Benoni: Twenty years? You mean you're not young any more?|
|Jan-02-14|| ||jnpope: I like to think of myself as a young historian instead of as an old chess player!|
|Jan-02-14|| ||TheFocus: <jnpope> Do you plan to include Harry's checker games and checker match record?|
|Jan-03-14|| ||jnpope: I have been collecting his checker games as well as any mention of his whist participation (he was a member of the the Brooklyn Whist Club).|
|Jan-03-14|| ||TheFocus: Great. Looking forward to the 20th anniversary book.|
|Mar-02-14|| ||jnpope: I finally found my motivation (apparently it was hidden under a sofa cushion).|
