After all we meet an entry on Ken Whyld
in WIKIPEDIA - The Free Encyclopedia.



An early short notice on Ken Whyld appeared in
CHESS (Jan. 1950, p.83) when he was 23,
see P.C.C. Personalities (No.11)



Ken Whyld together with Anny and Kurt Landsberger at a business dinner.
We quote the latter: "Any time I was in England I met Ken ... In this particular case,
do not know the year but it was many years ago, invited him to join us for a business
dinner and he took the train to be with us. On the opposite side, end of table, was our
European Salesman Paul Sumner (still see him every time I am in Europe and his
nephew is Sting) and across from me our European competitors with whom we used
to be friendly ..." [The date on the photo suggests 21 May 1994.]
