...The new Stockholm Chess Society, which founded 1866, was given the following appearance: the secretary was appointed Gustaf Schultz and Professor A.E. Nordenskiöld, the polar scientist who later with his ships would find the way through the Arctic Ocean via the mentioned North East Passage. The other two members were <Severin Bergh, one of the strongest players in the world> and wholesale dealer A.W. Hafström. (Translation)
