Dead Legends

They're dropping off like the pawns in the BDG. Now yet another big name from an earlier era passes away.

RIP Andor Lilienthal.

Chessbase has the better pictures but, as always, Chessvibes has the superior discussion with some very fine nuggets from their readers. (Which, by the way, always begs the question for me: when, oh when, will Chessbase ever enter the 21st century as far as web-publishing is concerned?)

Also passing away is Feodor Skripchenko.

Earlier, of course, was Campo's death at age 83. To their credit, FIDE has a nice page that includes condolences from various feds around the world, including even one from New Zealand. There was no such message from the Australians.
