Brian Perham 1934-2010
Iím †sorry to say that Brian Perham died on Saturday
10th April 2010, following a long struggle against cancer.
Brian was 76 on 3rd February this year. He was one of many who
learned their chess at Worcester College in the reign of Reg Bonham.
Brian went on to Oxford University where he studied law. He worked
for much of his life as a senior lawyer in 'The Royal London'
a leading insurance firm.
very promising chess beginnings Brian gave up chess to concentrate
on his career and his family. He started playing in B.C.A. events
again some 25 years ago. Brian was involved in many organisations
campaigning for better conditions for blind people and served
on many committees. many will remember Brian for his great intellect
and for his ever present sense of humour. Many times he has reduced
a meeting of intense debaters to uncontrollable laughter.
