Frank James Marshallborn August 10, 1877
Frank, Caroline and Frank, Jr., 1907
Nice pic of him in 1941 at Hamilton.Seemed hes looking to the place where he would soon go. The chess kingdom. Quiet scene full of serenity.
You can read some more about the Marshall Chess Club HERE.
Thanks for posting! Did anyone read the caption on the last pic? "Their apartment at the Marshall chess club" ... How awesome would that be!?! Frank would just take the stairs to play at the club, or invite someone up for a private game. Yeah that would be sweet.
Without a doubt, my favorite player of all time. Thanks for posting... Mark LaRocca
