|Sep-11-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Herbert Mois Avram:
His wife, Henriette D Abram, was a noted librarian:
|Mar-10-12|| ||Phony Benoni: To be exact, <Henriette D Avram> was not a librarian, but a computer programmer. She worked closely with the Library of Congress to devise a standard for encoding the information found in a library catalog into a computer-usable form. Her basic ideas continue to be a worldwide standard after more than forty years, though many of the details continue to evolve.|
|Jun-24-13|| ||jerseybob: I played Avram as black in a Leningrad in Round 3 of the 1970 Capital City Open in D.C. After various ups and downs we reached an ending with black up two pawns, but the wily vet slipped out with a draw.|
|Jan-24-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Herbert Avram!!
Nice win over Baby Fischer!!
