  GrahamClayton: Erich Watkinson Marchand (1914-1999).
Emeritus professor of mathematics at Rochester, a chess lifemaster, US amateur champion and also NY State champion 4 times.
Jul-31-10  Ken Chamberlain: I have played Marchand many times. Won a few, drew a few, and lost a few.
Apr-14-12  Davalillo: I remember watching him play 12 year old phenom Jonathan Tisdall in a Syracuse tournament in the early to mid 1970s. Tisdall beat him and announced to another boy that he had come to the tournament with the goal of beating Marchand.

  Phony Benoni: <"Chess ia an absorbing game--the way the masters play it....

"Take Erich Marchand of St. Louis, the Missouri champion. he gets so absorbed in the game his wife writes postcards for him to mail her.

"Fearing he wouldn't get around to writing her how he's coming out, she fixed up a couple of dozen self-addressed cards like this:

I won
He won

"When a match is over, all Marchand has to do is check what happened and drop the card in a mailbox.">

Syndicated article by Harold L. Ratliff, appearing in the "Amarillo Daily News" (August 26, 1942) and other Texas papers during the 1942 US Open in Dallas.
