Dr. Constantin Schwede (30.10.1854 – 10.2.1917)

trat sowohl als Partiespieler als auch als Problemist hervor. In den 1870er Jahren war er als Redakteur für die "Deutsche Schachzeitung" tätig und übernahm von 1876–78 von Johannes von Minckwitz zeitweise die Position des Herausgebers. "Winke für Problernverfasser" war ein erster von mehreren größeren Artikeln, die Schwede als Problemist verfasste.

"Schach auf dem Lande" (dt. Schachzeitung, 1874):
