California Chess Columns

by Kerry Lawless

Chess columns can be found in a wide variety of periodicals; including newspapers, city, trade and company publications. Due the nature of the newspaper business and the need to draw ever more readers, managing editors generally prefer chess columns aimed at the general reader, rather than the chess player. So, as a rule, there are more columns written concerning general chess topics than regional ones. Even so, chess columns are generally published weekly, which means that they can get the local news to chessplayers more quickly than the monthly magazines. This list, of course, represents only a small fraction of the California chess columns published since 1850. But, as more information is unearthed, it will be included. I wish to thank Andy Ansel, Alan Benson, Patsy A. D'Eramo, Jr., John Donaldson, Martin E. Morrison (from CL), Frisco Del Rosario, Elizabeth Shaughnessy and Henry Vinerts for their many contributions. Special thanks must go to both John Blackstone and Richard Shorman for their extensive contributions which have enriched our knowledge of Southern and Northern California, respectively. Special thanks also goes to Jacques N. Pope for his work on the Jack O'Keefe Project posted on Chessarch.com. Of course, this list wouldn't have been possible without the pioneering work of Ken Whyld!

Abreviations used in listings:
An underline ( _ ) means 'and'. For instance, January 1_3, means January 1 and January 3.
A hyphen ( - ) means 'to'. For instance, January 1-3, means January 1, January 2 and January 3.

Chess, January 8, 1956 (EDITOR'S STATEMENT - I have just been notified by The Times that I am to edit the chess column, as successor to the late Herman Steiner. Mr. Steiner was my friend for over 30 years. I know better than most the love he had for chess, and the zeal with which he played and taught the game. The column reflected the dignity of the man, his knowledge of the game and its personalities, his desire to promote and develop interest in chess. I have submitted the material for the column for the last four weeks. There have been some changes in format, and there may be others. In the main, I shall endeavor to continue the column in the good spirit with which it was conducted for 20 odd years. - ISAAC KASHDAN. - column contains Problem N's 2717, 2718)
