  GrahamClayton: Walter Frere (1874-1943) was one of the top amateur players in the New York City area. Frere came from a chess-playing family, his father being Thomas Frere, who had helped organise the First American Chess Congress of 1857, won by Paul Morphy.

Frere was a member of both the Brooklyn and Marshall Chess Clubs, and was a correspondent for the 'American Chess Monthly'.

Jan-19-12  brankat: Played two simul games against Dr.Lasker, 32 years apart. A win and a Draw! Not many players could do that.

R.I.P. Mr.Frere.
