  Chessical: "The Brisbane Chess Club will celebrate its 60th anniversary this year.The present patron (Mr.Alexander Palmer), was one of the leading players when the club was formed in 1894. The youngest competitor, he won the 1895 Queensland Championship at the age of 17."

"The Courier-Mail" (Brisbane), Tuesday 16 November 1954, p.9.

"After an absence of many years Mr A. C. Palmer re-entered into the field when he played the members of the Brisbane Ladies' Chess Club simultaneously. Although hard pressed in a few of the games he was successful in all of them."

"The Telegraph" (Brisbane), Friday 19 July 1935, p.11.
