Photographs submitted to Chessgames 1

[Last updated – 2016-03-25]

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.

Rudoph Loman (§)
Salmone Reischer (§)
Captain William Davies Evans (§)

David Moody (§) (not public domain, but used with permission)

Lev Polugaevsky (§)
Abraham Mocatta (§)
Max Judd (§)
Hermann Helms (§)
Charles A. Gilberg (§)
Albert de Rothschild (§)

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:

Dmitry Gurevich (<CG> uses Dmitri, which is wrong, <CG> has different photo)
Alexander Goldin (§)
Florin Felecan (§)
Kevin Bachler (§)
Albert Chow

The following obituary and photograph fall under the “fair use” category.
Milan Momic (§)

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)

John Cochrane (§)
Vladimir Bagirov
Genrikh Chepukaitis
Henrique Mecking  (<CG> has different, much older, photo)
Alexis Cartier (§)
A. G. Pearsall (§)

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.
