F.D.Field-Hyde 1904-1981

The "Express & Star" reported the sudden death of F.D.Field-Hyde at the age of 77. When at Cambridge he played rugger for the varsity, and later for Derby. We remember him as Headmaster of Tettenhall College for 26 years. He retired to Church Stretton in 1968. He was a stalwart member of the Wolverhampton Chess Club for 24 years and became Vice-President. At Church Stretton he re-vitalised local chess, and his name appeared regularly in the official Grading List. "Mens sana in corpore sano"
