Adam Cubreth Game25 Open Results

These two photos comes from the chess archives of Jacqueline Piatigorsky who inherited them from her chess teacher Herman Steiner.

The first can be found in Casey’s book Grandmaster from Oregon about Athur Dake of Portland but the second, treatment showing Reshevsky, information pills Arthur Dake and Herman Steiner receiving their prizes for tying for third place. I believe, but am not 100 percent certain, that the man presenting the envelopes is Dr. Robert Griffith.

John Donaldson owns the photos now and made them available to NWC.
