Began chess in High School,  but gave it up all-too-soon. Got back to it with "Fischer Fever,"  1972.  Played in first-ever World Open, NYC, 1973 (Even got a win =  a byeYell.  Organized a club in Newport, RI,  became a TD. 

 Conducted three school chess programs in the area,  including state HS champion team in 1996. My 'chess hero'?  New England legend John Curdo.  "Who's that?"  you ask.  Check him out - an amazing record!
