Here's a Goren story from Sports Illustrated about him playing with the Dodgers (using a trunk in the locker room as a table) as they were leaving Brooklyn: https://www.si.com/vault/1958/04/14/668675/you-cant-beat-the-cards
Richard Tracy
IIRC, only Vitamin Flintheart (anyone remember that character?) ever called him "Richard".
Richard Tracy
Yes, Richard is Oswald Jacoby. And I'd be willing to bet that his teammate in some of his thirties triumphs in the database right now "Bruce Chester" is actually David Burnstine/Bruce, and "Elizabeth Hopkins" is Michael Gottlieb. Howard Schenken doesn't show up if you search for him ...
Richard Tracy
And all on top of an illustrious career as a crimefighter... (Edit: Somebody in ACBL IT is having us on with a made-up name while they're detecting (see what they did there?) why many people are not showing up in the winners database.)
Winners of national events
Caveat: that page seems to have some flaws with respect to older data. For instance if you try to search for Oswald Jacoby you won't find him, and if you look at events from way back (even into the 1970s, at a quick glance) you may not see all ...

World's Greatest Gamesman (Eddie Kantar, Sports Illustrated, January 11, 1971)
Based on that glowing reference, I have just ordered myself a copy.
World's Greatest Gamesman (Eddie Kantar, Sports Illustrated, January 11, 1971)
Goren had a monthly bridge column in SI from 1957 until the early 1970s. I should say, there was a monthly bridge column that appeared under Goren's byline (Goren being a brand by that time, incorporated and everything).
Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer 1927-2018
A Milton Q. Ellenby passed away in the Chicago area a few years ago who was the right age, although that might be a coincidence. I do know that Billy Rosen was honoured by induction into the ACBL Hall of Fame, at the time Ellenby was not mentioned and might ...
