  wordfunph: intro by Sam Sloan from the book Adventures of a Chess Master - A Short History of Blindfold Chess..

<At the 1966 U.S. Open in Seattle, Peter Cleghorn was among the leaders. Cleghorn was a terrific player who could have been a grandmaster, but he tended to live in Alaska and other areas where little chess was played. I had played in Cleghorn's first rated tournament, which was in October, 1962. Cleghorn had won with an overwhelming score. Cleghorn was already at least a 2300 player when he played his first rated game of chess.>

  GrahamClayton: Cleghorn finished 4th-8th in the 1966 US Open with a score of 9.5-3.5, finishing equal with Anthony Saidy, Arthur Bisguier, Ivars Dalbergs and Ronald Gross. Cleghorn did defeat tournament co-winner Pal Benko in Round 4.
