He spends over 20 hours each week in chess at the Institute of Living. With some spare time, he works in his cellar, refurbishing chess sets. Recently he worked with Dr. Platz at the hobby show at the YMCA. One evening, the Bishops Corner branch of the Hartford National Bank and Trust Co. held an open house chess night attended by about 60 persons, and 10 fathers played chess with their sons. More recently, Mr. DeWolfe visited two churches north of Boston giving a chess program to a large number.
