RIP Robert Byrne


 
I was saddened to hear that GM Byrne, 84, passed away at his home in Ossining, NY, Friday.  I met Byrne at the 1974 US Championship and was pleased to find him a most affable person.  He was a fixture in US chess for many, many years; he will be missed.  Byrne’s NewYork Time Obituary
