  Phony Benoni: Lists of the players in each section of the "Continental Jubilee Correspondence Tournament" were printed in the <American Chess Bulletin>. Section 77 (ACB January / February 1942, p. 18) Includes:

<Cadet William Windom, New London, Conn.>.

Seeking to verify that this was the actor, I found this information at the "William Windom Tribute Site" ( https://williamwindom.com/trivia-qu... ):

"<When Bill was 13, he enrolled at the Admiral Billard Naval Academy in New London, CT in 1937. He was part of the school’s second freshman class.... Bill attended the academy for 5 years...>"

Which corroborates everything, right down to the "Cadet".
