Jack Woodbury has donated many items from his chess collection – below is the book list –  to be added are some sets and software:

[table “3” not found /]

Note: the Rosenbloom list below has been updated for Sold items

Earl Rosenbloom (chess player active in the 60’s, 70’s, early 80’s) passed away in late 2014. His widow, Choo,  donated Earl’s chess material to the Association. Below is  list of the books.
Please let me know (chessmanitoba@gmail.com) if there is anything you want to inspect for  your collection, and I will bring it to a Tuesday night round.  Proceeds will be used in some fashion for an Earl Rosenbloom Memorial tournament.
