The History and The Culture of Chess
March 24, 2004
If anyone read my posting entitled The Indominatable Ellen Gilbert, you might remember that I gave a cursory bio of George Hatfeild Dingley Gossip. Gossip wasn't an easy name to research. I found some information in Hooper and Whyld's Oxford Companion to Chess, some in a few other books I have handy, and some, but not much, on the internet.
I recently came across a very nice piece by William Winter at Chess Cafe dealing with Gossip.
Go Chess Cafe's Chess Notes and look at #'s 3241, 3245 & 3254.
There're even a couple of pictures.
