Professor Bob Meyer, a former ACT Chess Association President, passed away yesterday (6th May 2009) after a long battle with cancer. Bob had been a regular fixture on the ACT club scene since the mid 1970's and had been an early member of a number of fledgling ACT clubs. He was a participant in a number of ACT Championships over the last 4 decades.
Away from chess he was long time faculty member at the Australian National University, specialising in Logic. Although he officially retired almost 10 years ago, he maintained his connection to the university as a Visiting Fellow, and was still at his desk up until a few months ago.
