On November 25, 2015 in RNPLS&T there was commemoration meeting for Isaak M. Linder, an outstanding chess historian and writer.
The event was organized by Center of chess culture and information of RNPLS&T and Russian Chess Federation, and symbolically was called “Touch of history”.
In the conference hall there were more than 80 persons – chess players, journalists, historians, chess amateurs, close ones of Isaak M. Linder and employees of the library. Those with whom he communicated during the last decade of his long, bright and rich in the events and meetings life, also came.
The evening began with short welcome speech of Elena V. Lindeman, Deputy General director of RNPLS&T.
Then there was 14-minutes film “Life chronicles in photos” made by close family of the grandson – Alexander Linder.
14 minutes and 95 years of life! 80 of them Isaak Linder was near Yury L. Averbakh. The eldest gross master of the world drowned the room in memories about his youth, the years when he began his way in big chess at the Stadium of young pioneers together with Issak Linder and Vasily Smyslov, future world champion.
Then Vladimir Linder, moderator of the evening, spoke. He highlighted important themes in complex creative life of his father:
According to Petr Romanovsky, famous soviet master and trainer, Isaak Linder was the first who showed that chess are justly a sphere of culture.
Isaak Linder wrote about creative life of world champions during morer than half a century, and 30 years togetherwith his son. In 2001 he published fundamental work “Kings of chess world”. That evening 3 kings of the 20 century – Boris Spassky (via Sergey Voronkov), Anatoly Karpov (via Murad Amannazarov) and Garry KAsporov (via Dmitry Plisetsky) – paid the tribute to the memory of the chess historian.
Iriona, daughter of Vladimir Alatortsev, gross master, remembered Isaak Linder with special warmth. Fictionalized book of creative duet of Linders “Two lives of gross master Alatortsev” was a revelation in chess literature – nobody wrote about chess players like that.
Natalia Kostina, sculpture, Olga Kostina, philologist, Boris Fomenko, Deputy Chief editor of encyclopedic dictionary “Chess” – everyone remembered “his or her unique Isaak Linder”, a creative thinker who was utterly devoted to chess and could “infect” any company with his ideas.
During many years Isaak Linder studied subjects of “Chess esthetics” and “Chess in world fiction”.
