Walter Bradford Suesman was born September 19, 1918 in Providence, Rhode Island.
He was a participant in both the 1938 and 1946 US Championship Tournaments. See: http://members.aol.com/graemecree/c... for the 1938 event, and http://members.aol.com/graemecree/c... for the 1946 tournament.
According to Santasiere: "Walter Suesman looks and plays like Mickey Mouse. Handicapped physically, his bright spirit has nevertheless grasped life firmly and cheerfully."
"One day he'll play a King's Gambit against Kashdan and win; the next day, likely as not, he may leave a piece <en prise>. At Boston 1944 US Open, he defeated Reshevsky and won brilliantly over Weaver Adams, but was unable to maintain his play at such a level, so that he did not rank among the leaders."
He died in Providence on November 11, 1984.

|Jul-17-10|| ||CitizenJimserac: I had the pleasure of playing Walter B. Suesman several times at the Providence Chess Club on Aborn St., which I joined in the early 1960's. Other regulars there were Warren Chamandy and U.S. Master Al Martin. Suesman had a chess column in the Providence Journal for over 30 years which appeared in the Wed. Evening Bulletin. He also had an incredible hobby - he built 4-5 foot long scale models of steamships and sailing vessels of the 1800's - built to exacting and astonishingly precise detail, right down to planks in the deck made from wooden matchboxes. I believe his collection of ships is on display every now and then at the Providence Public Library.|

|Dec-17-10|| ||Nunc Temus: I played 2 correspondence games with Mr. Suesman in the early 1980s. I drew one game. He was a true gentleman...|
