  OhioChessFan: I hadn't heard of him, but he has a nice resume'.
Mar-20-18  Nosnibor: With wins against Kashdan, Suttles and Lombardy not including a clock simul win against Gligoric he was certainly a strong Southern American player.He did well in the 1955 U.S.Open. Maybe we should rivise our opinion of his strength!
Mar-20-18  RookFile: Sounds like a master.
