Dear colleagues at the FCCJ, Especially the veterans among us


Svend Nyboe Andersen


During the “corona break”, I was kindly asked to research and write a short biography about my late predecessor as Tokyo Correspondent for Danish media, Mr. Svend Nyboe Andersen. The request came from his daughter, who is one of my good old friends. Now the worst corona paralysis seems to be over, but I am of course finishing the work. This kind of detective work into the past fascinates me. The book will be published early next year in Danish.

“Svend Andersen”, as he was known at the club, was a very active member from 1965 until 1967 and again from 1971 until 1977. He chaired several committees and was a member of the board once, after having been a candidate several times. He spent innumerable evenings and nights at the workroom, orga- nized chess tournaments and art exhibitions and put his mark on club life in many ways. If any of you have memories, good or bad, about anecdotes, episodes and achievements during Svend Andersen’s time at the club, I would be grateful to hear from you.
