Who is Mark Donlan?

I didn't know much about Mark Donlan when he e-mailed me back in October about publishing content from the 2004 Boylston Chess Club Championship blog, except that he was (and still is) the editor of Chess Horizons. This piece by The Cape Codder fills in many details about Mark's varied chess activities.
In addition to teaching at the library and in the Harwich elementary and middle school enrichment programs, Donlan is the editor of both ChessCafé.com and the Chess Horizons, a chess magazine.... Ironically, Donlan didn't learn chess as a child, but picked it up about 15 years ago. "It just clicked and it went forward from there," he explained. He's currently a candidate for grand master in correspondence chess.
