AN INDEX TO THE B.C.A. GAZETTE
 

The B.C.A. Gazette has been in production for most of the Association’s history but unfortunately no back issues are known to exist prior to 1964. The first surviving Gazette is dated January 1964 and is numbered 65. Allowing four issues per year and no breaks, we can assume that the Gazette began publication in January 1948.

The only complete run of copies of the Gazette between 1964 and 1977 appear as supplements in bound volumes of the Braille Chess Magazine in the RNIB National Library. The B.C.A. Archive holds a complete collection of Braille Gazettes covering the period January 1978 to date, with a few issues available pre-1978. In addition to these, there are annual reports for the years 1960 1961 and 1962. These look like they were compiled from articles in the quarterly Gazettes for those years. Note that occasional reports about the B.C.A. appeared in the Braille Chess Magazine since its founding in 1934.

This index consists of the list of contents for each Gazette, with some remarks added in brackets for additional clarification. Some of the pre-1990 articles can be found on cassette in the publication “British Blind Play Chess”, which can be downloaded from the B.C.A. website.

The index finishes in April 1997, since later Gazettes are available on the B.C.A. website.

Explanation of some Regular features in the Gazette:

“We have heard” consists of news about members;

“Sharpen your wits” has positions and solutions;

“Meet the B.C.A.” consists of members’ profiles.
