  GrahamClayton: Biography for Louis Russell "Russ" Chavenet:

An interesting life both in and outside of chess.

Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: Chauvent wrote a letter to "Chess Life" back in July 1949 where he offered to print a mimeographed 'Openings Bulletin', which would consist of a 10-20 page publication giving the most up to date theory and opening lines. A central clearing house would be needed to collate all of the relevant material. 4 issues a year were proposed, with the subscription per year being between 50 cents and $1(!).

It is interesting to see how players thought about keeping up to date with opening theory before "Informator" and the Internet!
