:lol: E.B. Hanes, Philip de Schaap, and John G. White were all world famous collectors of draughts literature (multi-language). And their fine collections can still be seen yet today. Daniel Frank on the other hand donated a large amount of money many years ago for the use of the Pa. St. Ck Association--who still benefit from his generousity yet today. :lol: "Mr. Checkers"
