(Sir) Theodore Henry Tylor was born in Bournville Birmingham, England. He was a tutor in Jurisprudence at Oxford University, a post he held for nearly 40 years. Although classed legally blind he represented England at the Hamburg Olympiad in 1930. He was British Correspondence Champion in 1932, 1933 and 1934 and is probably best known for competing in the Nottingham tournament of 1936. He passed away in Oxford in 1968.

Nov-26-04  sneaky pete: I know very little about law, but I wonder: can my fits of chess blindness be legalized?
Oct-27-05  slapwa: Sir Theodore Tylor was a law tutor at Balliol (where the Law Library bears his name) who became President of the Royal National Institution for the Blind. He is the model for Pargetter in Robertson Davies’ novel, The Manticore.

  GrahamClayton: <slapwa> Sir Theodore Tylor was a law tutor at Balliol (where the Law Library bears his name).

Tylor is commemorated at Balliol by a plaque on the East Wall of the Antechapel, plus another plaque on the West Wall of the Library, which says:

"The Tylor Library, named in memory of Sir Theodore Tylor, 1900 - 1968, who, as Scholar, Fellow, Tutor in Jurisprudence and Estates Bursar spent fifty years in dedicated service to the College."

Apr-04-13  vinidivici: He was almost blind at all.
