the scholastic chess community. Some of this information will be added to

With great sympathy, we extend our condolences to our dear friend, Alex
Dunne, who suffered the loss of his wife, Janet, and his grandson, Buddy, in a
fire that destroyed Alex's house on 16 February. Alex has been a valued part of
the American Chess School's events since 1980.
We mourn with Alex and offer him our love during this difficult time. You may
view a tribute
to Buddy created by Robert Ferguson. We also encourage you to make
a donation to the Alex Dunne Fund, a cooperative effort of CorrespondenceChess.com
and the Pennsylvania Chess
