Remembering Cyril Kipping (10-x-1891 17-ii-1964)

Cyril Kipping was England's most prolific problem composer with in excess of 7,000 compositions knocking TR Dawson into second place.

An interesting fellow with chess connections back to Morphy via his grandfather JS Kipping and other family members.

Quite a large amount of material was "lost" to the internet save for the invaluable WayBack machine. :D
