Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-07  chenturini: Maybe will includes in the lil' biography, he is autor of some theory works, by example "The Alekhine Defense", in the 70hs is excellent.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Did he write anything else other than Alekhine's Defence with Richard Eales?
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: Williams won his 18th Welsh championship title in 2011.
Jan-15-14  RedShield: I've seen reference to him as plain Howard Williams. Did he drop Arthur as being old-fashioned?
Jan-15-14  FrogC: I've played him several times, though he is much stronger than me. A delightful, modest man as well as a fine player. As far as I know he's always preferred the name Howard.
Jan-19-14  RedShield: Another British player who chose to drop an unfashionable first name: Harold James Plaskett.

I knew a Jeremy who shortened it to Jez.

Sep-25-21  Cibator: <RedShield: Another British player who chose to drop an unfashionable first name: Harold James Plaskett.>

Unlike former UK Prime Minister (James) Harold Wilson (not a chess player as far as I know).
