Magnus Smith

Very interesting article on this former Manitoban at Chesscafe.

"Magnus Smith won the Canadian championship every time it was held from 1899 to 1906. He dominated Canadian chess as no one would for a generation. When Canada could no longer contain him, Smith moved to New York and rubbed shoulders with the world class of chess – Lasker, Marshall and Capablanca."
