Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-28-06  cannibal: Just read that he already died last Sunday. Another sad loss for the chess world. I think almost every German chess player has learnt from at least one of his books. R.I.P.
Feb-17-08  brankat: Would be 85 today.

Happy Birthday anyhow!

<I think almost every German chess player has learnt from at least one of his books.>

Not just a German chess player.

Even more importantly, let's not forget his 30 years of editorial work with the "Deutsche Schachzeitung", the World's oldest surviving chess magazine!

Feb-14-12  Sasportas: 2 weeks ago I submitted a fine and theoretically interesting Teschner game to Barendregt - Teschner 0:1, European team championship Hamburg 1965 (Ruy Lopez, exchange variation). It should really be included in the game collection!

Rudolf Teschner ist tot

'.. Teschners besondere Leistung lag neben dem Turnierspiel in seiner rührigen Publikationsarbeit. Er war nach Beendigung des Zweiten Weltkriegs Herausgeber der monatlich erscheinenden Deutschen Schachzeitung. Sie erschien unter seiner Leitung von 1950 bis 1988, wobei ihn Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter bis zu seinem Tod 1969 unterstützte. Als (dann einziger) Redakteur korrespondierte Teschner mit einer Vielzahl namhafter freier Mitarbeiter aus der ganzen Welt, meist in deren Muttersprache. Außerdem betreute er die Schachspalten vom Berliner Tagesspiegel und der Berliner Morgenpost und hielt zahlreiche Volkshochschulkurse. Ein Herzanfall als Folge der völlig überraschenden Einstellung der „Schachzeitung“ durch den Verlag de Gruyter zwang ihn 1988 zu einer mehrmonatigen Pause. Den Entschluss, sein Leben neu zu ordnen, setzte er um so lieber um, als ihm in den Jahren 1988-1992 vier Enkelkinder geboren wurden. ..'

from Alfred Seppelt [i.a. Ehrenpräsident des Berliner Schachverbandes], MITTEILUNGSBLATTDES BERLINER SCHACHVERBANDES E.V., Heft 4, 2006
