A list of players whose pictures I submitted for addition (or improvement) on <CG>. All, unless otherwise noted, are public domain. Those marked with (§) have been adopted by <CG>, the rest are presumably pending, awaiting review.
The next 5 players come from an old issue of ICB I found. These photographs are not public domain, but are used under the restricted permission of the Illinois Chess Assocation:
The rest are all again public domain. The John Cochrane portrait, in particular, comes from an old issue of Scientific American. I used photoshop to fix it, and slightly improve it for viewing – and I think it’s the world’s best portrait of Cochrane (at least until somebody finds the original source and does a better, higher-resolution, scan)
Actually, the following may, or may not, be public domain. I use it under “fair use”, in homage to one of my favorite chess writers/reviewers.
John L. Watson (<CG> uses Wikimedia photo instead)
Please forgive the lack of references in the following. This entire post was designed to “encourage” <CG> to process the submissions, and each submission to <CG> was properly referenced. Next time the need arises for a similar post to this one, I will include the references. In fact, I may just as well post the photos to a blog page prior to even submitting them.
