Alex Crisovan (†)

With our Swiss "young member" an old-timer of chess journalism has joined the KWA, Alex Crisovan was editor of the Schweizerische Schachzeitung from 1973 to 1978. His publications are numerous, certainly the chronicle of the Swiss Chess Federation on the occasion of its centenary celebrations has to be rated as a remarkable contribution to the documentation of the history of chess.
