A current query by Alan McGowan:

I am working on a manuscript for an English language book about the Berlin chess master, author and editor, Kurt Richter (1900-1969).
I am asking if any KWA members have any information or illustrations that they may be willing to share with me, and that might be used in the book.
I already have a considerable amount of information, including most of all the relevant German chess periodicals from 1925-1970, as well as copies of all books Richter authored or edited. 
Therefore, if anyone is able/willing to help, it is likely that information would include personal connections, reminiscences, or illustrations not available elsewhere.
I acquired some personal papers and photographs from Richter's brother, Gerhard, but by that time a considerable amount of material had already gone to friends and collectors. (Thanks to Michael Negele and the late Ralph Schiffmann for previous help in this regard.)
Thank you, and best wishes to all.
