  Stonehenge: Some other databases have Rodolfo Tan Cardoso playing in this tournament. Ruth Cardoso is correct (she was married to Pal Benko).

  Stonehenge: Well it says on CG that they were married but I can find no evidence of that.

There is however https://www.avlerchess.com/chess-mi...

<As every chess player knows, Ruth V. Cardoso, the South American Woman's Chess Champion, was the constant companion of Grandmaster Pal Benko. They were together for thirty years from 1970 until her death in 2000.

Although Ruth Cardoso spent six months out of every year in New Jersey or New York, she retained a dual residence in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

Ruth Cardoso died on February 11, 2000 leaving everything to Grandmaster Benko in her will, including her brokerage accounts at Citibank, 120 Broadway, New York NY.>

Mar-30-21  Olavi: Benko was married to Gizella Nagy, a mathematician, they married in 1968 and have two sons. But Benko couldn't spend so much time in Hungary.
