Bridge Books of Yesteryear
I agree with the Blue and Gold books’ importance and have them in my collection, however they’re still so easy to come by that I wonder whether a reprint is necessary. I was thinking of the rarer works that were starved for oxygen by Culbertson in their day (on ...
Bridge Books of Yesteryear
I’m not sure which of these qualify as worthwhile for bridge reasons rather than as historical artifacts, but in no particular order: -The first edition of the Encyclopedia of Contract Bridge that was published in 1935 (by the Culbertson organization, the ACBL’s first edition was not published til ...
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

Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer 1927-2018

Pop History: Life Has Been a Winning Hand (Oswald Jacoby, from The Madison [Wisconsin] Courier, February 3, 1984)
That description seems like a sort of "booklet" that was often offered to newspaper readers for a small sum as an advertising gimmick. It was kind of like an adult version of the "send in ten cents and a boxtop" items offered by children's radio programs (anyone remember the ...

That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing, Richard.
Pop History: Life Has Been a Winning Hand (Oswald Jacoby, from The Madison [Wisconsin] Courier, February 3, 1984)
You are right...von Zedtwitz and Gruenther both died in 1984. Lightner had already passed in 1981.
Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
"I have been predicting that somebody would invent a card game that would replace bridge, perhaps something that would still have the partnership feature, but would have little or no bidding." Bridge as we play it evolved from games like that because they weren't as much fun or as ...
