Library Donations (BCM / Chess / Manila Olympiad)

Donna Officer, mother of  Woman’s FIDE Master Amy Officer who was Scottish Girl Player of 2006, has kindly donated two large boxes of chess magazines to the club’s library (some originating from John Glendinning).

The boxes contained issues of:

British Chess Magazine (covering the period January 1959 through to December 1994);


Chess (from  May 1965 through to April 1985);


and have helped fill in a number of gaps in the library’s collections.

Also in the boxes were publications from the Manila Olympiad 1992 including the Souvenir Programme, daily Bulletins and the Tournament Book (which includes a record of every game played!).


Once catalogued any duplicate issues will be either donated to junior players or sold to support the club’s chess playing activities.

Many thanks again to Donna (and John)!
