  GrahamClayton: Salm also holds the record for the longest gap between playing in a ICCF World Championship final tournament - 27 years between 1962 and 1989.
Nov-30-14  ljfyffe: Came 4th in1959-1962Final III;13th in 1962-1965 Final IX;14th in 1989-1998Final XIII.
Mar-31-20  rwbean: I remember meeting him once at a Qld Chess Championship around 1991-93 ... I heard there was a period of many years where he didn't lose a game, so if all of his correspondence games were listed here there'd be a long streak without losses. He was Brisbane Chess Club champion in 1966 and Queensland champion in 1939, 1945-48, and 1966-67.
