The big picture (1939, The Hague)
I identified the four members of the french women team (they won the Championship) - Marie Claire de Montaigu - "Moussia" Marie Behr - Annie Pouldjian The last, Christiane Martin, was usually easy to recognize : she was young, blond and with a very fine face. There is no woman with these characteristics on ...
Post 11. Captain Ewart Kempson - “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” Monday, 18th September 2017.
Yes, I have the same informations, the mother of E. G. Kempson was born american with Amy as forename, but in a personal family tree, it is Emmy !
Post 11. Captain Ewart Kempson - “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” Monday, 18th September 2017.
I know a personal family tree about Ewart (Gladstone)Kempson (I suppose that the author is a member of his family, if necessary I can verify this fact). The given dates are: Birth = in September 3rd, 1898, Kingston (source = " Civilian registration, Jamaica ") Death = in May 4th, 1966, Durham (source = probate ...
Post 4 Not returning partner’s suit. 23rd August 2017 (Last time I mixed up my “post numbers” with “Post 5”, so this is “Post 4” - used to do that quite a lot when pitching my tent in the wind).

HISTORY OF BRIDGE : "The first or oldest major facts of the game of Bridge"
Richard, you are right : never the scoring of bridge was inherited from whist. There are five differences between whist and bridge, and one is specifically the scoring (in bridge, the score by suits is exactly the same that in Boston, divided by 2 : 2/4/6/8 instead of 4 ...
HISTORY OF BRIDGE : "The first or oldest major facts of the game of Bridge"
I dont think that the reason for the low value of spades was to have a cheap option : this fact would be rather a happy consequence, by chance. The range of suits at the time of the beginning of bridge () became from the game of Boston ...
First book written by a lady
About this article of 10 June 1909 and "Miss Eleanor A. Tennant, the only lady who has ever written book the game" This statement is incorrect. In Sept. 1903, Lady Anne Coventry, the wife of Prince Victor Duleep Singh, the eldest son of the Maharajah of Lahore and of the ...
First book written by a lady
About Mrs Horton. Yes, Ken, your are right, she wrote about bridge before E. Tennant, but it is not exactly a bridge book.
First book written by a lady
Ken, Thank you very much for your assessment (the world authority), but for me, I consider Thierry Depaulis, the Chairman of the International Card Playing Society of London (I know him of course very well)as the number one.
