    Additional: Ian Murray has been drafted.

    Something I overlooked, until Ian was drafted again this week.

    Ian has been the ACF Olympiad Appeal Coordinator since 2008, when he introduced an appeal website with an online donation facility

    Robert Jamieson IM KOSHNITSKY MEDALLIST 1984

    jammo.jpg

    Robert trod a similar path to Gary Koshnitsky in that he excelled as both a chess player and as a chess administrator.

    Like Evelyn Koshnitsky, he won both the Koshnitsky Medal for chess administration and the Purdy Medal for chess journalism.
    He edited the, “Chess Players Quarterly” from 1977 to 1981 and wrote “CJS Purdy- His Life, His games, His Writings” (1982)
    as well as producing numerous state/club newsletters and tournament bulletins.

    As an administrator, Robert was variously Australian Chess Federation President, Secretary and Treasurer and well as holding
    numerous other positions with the Melbourne, Monash and Waverley chess clubs and the Victorian Junior Chess League.
    Robert was made a Life Member of the ACF in 1999.

    Robert has been active in chess coaching.

    “The RJ Shield events are the longest running series of junior chess tournaments in Australia. They were first started by Hilda O'Callaghan
    in 1994 and known simply as "Novice Tournaments". They were later named after legendary International Master and former Australian
    Chess Champion, Robert Jamieson.

    Robert is still involved with these events; if you start playing in RJ Shields you might just be lucky enough to meet him one day”

    Questionable Link

    The single link in the Dr Zworestine post, "Dr Zworestine at the Australian Schools Teams Chess Championships in Canberra Dec’ 2012." is now flagged as a security risk by my Firefox Browser.
    Best to avoid. It looks like the actjcl site may be compromised

    Looks quite ok by my browser (microsoft edge - reinforced). A great website too! Brings back a very interesting and productive era of Australian Chess!

    Indeed the pictured gentleman is Mr. Peter Cassettari!
    Another snapshot of him (while jovially "lecturing" our very own Adamski during a RHCC event) here - (right on the picture):

    What a fantastic person and we can only hope that people are inspired to follow him. That is true wealth not money in the bank.

    I second this, blackbishop has endeavoured into a huge pool of historically important material to present us with a comprehensive list of great Australian chess personalities.
    I am sure Frank would definitely publish this collection in the ACF news bulletin including bb's biographical notes as well as highlights of his chess career be it that of a player and/or an administrator.
