  MissScarlett: Hastings and St. Leonard's Observer, August 5th 1922, p.8:

<It is with profound regret that we heard of the death, after a short illness, of our Club member and friend, Mr. Henry Pinkerton. The deceased gentleman was buried Wednesday, July 26th, in Edinburgh. He was spending a holiday in that city at the time the last call came for him. Of a genial, unassuring [sic], and lovable nature, he had seen, travelled and read much; was deeply interested in France and the French. As a chess enthusiast he was well known amongst the Bristol Chess Circle before coming to settle in Hastings, where he soon became a stalwart of the Club as well as one of its most regular attendants — possessing a fine natural talent for the game he revelled in complicated open positions — Pinkerton's Sheet—Anchor! (as the centre game is called here) has claimed at one time or another the scalps of most of the aspirants to the Club Championship Title! At one period he was a regular and successful competitor in one or other of the Tournaments at the annual Federation meetings, and at the Hastings British Champions' Tourney the Christmas before last he won the First Class Tournament without losing a same in quite a strong field. It is strange that the three members the Club has had the misfortune to mourn the loss this year should all have been the victims of that terrible but uncommon heart complaint, angina.>

  MissScarlett: As the game list above suggests, the highlight of Pinkerton's chess career was the international tournament at San Remo in February 1911. Originally intended as a gambit-themed tournament, a players' meeting apparently put that idea to bed. In any event, he was well out of his depth against a field including Reti, Kostich and Forgacs - he scored but one draw from ten games.
