  GrahamClayton: Bertil Westin (b. August 29 1927; d. December 28, 2015)


Dec-07-20  areknames: Thanks for the link to Westin's obituary, <GrahamClayton>. Seems like an interesting guy and apparently one of the pinnacles of his life was to be whipped by Bobby Fischer -whom he desribed as 'really nice person' - in an offhand blitz game during the Stockholm Interzonal in 1962. Great stuff!
