|Apr-25-12|| ||Yopo: Four Jeremiah F Donovan appears in this list http://www.faqs.org/people-search/j... . Which of them played chess?|
|Mar-12-14|| ||Phony Benoni: <Yupo> If he is any of those, it's probably the one born in 1921. Hermann Helms, in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 1940, indicates that he was a student at Brooklyn College, with fits best with that date. |
The Social Security Number was issued in Rhode Island, not Donovan's hoome state of New York. While is that is closer than the other Jeremiah F Donovans, it's enough to make me hesitate before identifying them complerely.
|Dec-07-14|| ||SBC: Herbert Seidman was also a student at Brooklyn College, capt. of their winning chess team, graduating in 1942.|
|Dec-08-14|| ||Stonehenge: There's also https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903...|
