  GrahamClayton: Budowski is an eminent scientist:


In 1951 Budowski won the Venezualan Campeonato de Extranjeros, the championship for foreign players.

He then defeated Julio Garcia, the winner of the Campeonato Nacional for local players, for the Campeón Absoluto de Venezuela title.

After the Machtergreifung in 1933 the Budowski's (a Jewish family) left Berlin for France. Where the young Gerardo became a shooting star in the Paris workers' chess circles and gave a numerous of simultaneous exhibitions in 1939.

At this year Gerardo also took part in the First Class (Section A) tournament of the British Chess Federation Congress in Bournemouth and the 14 year old won clearly his group with 9 out of 10!
