  GrahamClayton: Saxton was a very active player during the pre-war period and held the status of Expert during the years of 1937-1947. He specialized in annexing the Omaha City Championship after his first victory in 1937. Delmar won the Omaha title five times and finished second four times during a ten-year span after his win in 1937. He won the Nebraska State Chess Championship in 1939 and 1941.

In 1938 he won the Tri-State Championship at Sioux City, Iowa from a field composed of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota players. His crowning achievement came as he annexed the 5th Grand National Correspondence Chess Championship (C.C.L.A.) to become the 1937 National Champion. Victory came after nine years of play in 1946. An ardent correspondence fan, he had as many as 300 games in progress at the same time. Because of Delmar Saxtonís National Correspondence Chess Championship victory, he was one of two players (the other player was J.W. Collins from New York) in the U.S. to receive an invitation to play in the World Correspondence Tournament in 1947, but he declined the invitation to participate.
