Donner, Johannes (Jan) Hein

Jan Donner (1927-1988) was a Dutch grandmaster (1959) who won the Dutch championship in 1954, 1957, and 1958.  Donner was the first grandmaster that a Chinese player defeated.  At the Chess Olympiad in Buenos Aries in 1978, Liu Wen Che defeated Donner in 20 moves, putting China on the chess map.  He suffered a stroke in 1984 and was confined to a nursing home in Amsterdam until he died.
