We would like to add a picture of Larry List with his caption, showing him in prominent company:

"From my chess scrapbook: May 18, 2010. Surrounded by Champions! At the New York fundraiser for Anatoly Karpov's bid to become President of FIDE, I had the honor of meeting Karpov, Magnus Carlsen, and Gary Kasparov. Rex and Jeannie Sinquefield, founders of The World Chess Hall of Fame and the Chess Club & Scholastic Center of Saint Louis were so kind as to invite me as their guest."
