Here is an appeal from editors as they are sourcing out Singapore related chess materials:-



Spore Chess News is interested to purchase (or collect via donations or other forms) old issues of Singapore chess magazines, brochures, tournament reports, game collections, etc. We are particularly interested in material covering the 1950s through the 1990s.

It appears that the Singapore Chess Bulletin was published by the Singapore Chess Federation between 1961(?) and 1977(?). It was edited by Dr. Lim Kok Ann. Similarly, the Singapore Chess Digest appears to have started in 1978, edited by Ignatius Leong and published by the National Chess Enterprises. The date of its last number remains unclear to us.

Interested readers with access to complete (or incomplete) runs of such publications as well as those owning old photographs and other archival material on Singapore chess are encouraged to contact us.
