parisattack: Colorado chess players may remember Eugene Salome who was the chess coach at the University in Boulder for some years.
He also gave one of the most popular Honors courses in the school's history - The Chess Tradition in Man's Culture. This class ran from 1968-1972 and was constantly over-booked. Eugene - faulted as we all are - was quite a renaissance man with interests in many areas. I had many memorable walks and talks with him around town on numerous subjects. Our small booklet on Fischer-Spassky was the first to print; the day after the match ended!
The course consisted of lectures by university professors in various departments and other notables relating chess to their field - Art, Mathematics, Literature, Music, etc, etc. I particularly recall Stanislaw Ulam's Chess and Mathematics.
I was Eugene's assistant, occasionally hosting the class when he was ill or traveled. I also gave the Chess and Philosophy class even though I was but an undergrad.
Eugene's wife, Nancy, always attended and taped the classes. They are a treasure-trove of chess and culture related topics. Recently Nancy donated them (and much of Eugene's writings and correspondence) to the Denver Public Library -
Nancy and I had hope to write a book off these lectures/tapes but, alas, it never came to pass.
