 The Spirit and Kindness of Harry Lyman Shines
 "Readying" for Round 1 of 19th Charles Draft Memorial Tournament,at the BCC
The photo of Harry Lyman, shining over the tournament area reminds me of all those special moments I spent with Harry exploring the mysteries of chess, and also witnessing, especially, what kindness and generosity of spirit and wealth Harry put forth to all who came to visit the BCC, from spectator, beginner to grandmaster . . .
