1821 - 1901
invented sand-blasting! He was held in the same regard as Morse, Whitney, etc ...

Apparently, in his youth, college (1939) and early manhood, he was a very strong player. This game was probably one of his last; as he was active in the Civil War and then in his commercial ventures.

1847 - team correspondence match against Boston
.... - beat George Hammond 15-6 in a match
.... - played in England while researching iron works

1859 - Morphy, board #2
