Quick Gossip
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.
