Trollhattans Schacksallskap tourney awards(1917-37)


Where the results of famous Trollhattans Schacksallskap tourneys were published?
Was it Tidskrift för Schack magazine or some other publication?
Does anybody knows who was/were editor(s) of chess problem column in Tidskrift för Schack from 1900 till WWII?

Not 100% certain, but I believe many were published in Eskilstuna-Kuriren.

If You're still searching material, have a look at Brian Stephenson's Meson database on-line.

http://www.bstephen.me.uk/

The facility *access by sources* gives almost 50 problems for Trollhättans S Ts, and more than 500 for "Tidskrift för Schack" starting from 1890 (!!). I would like to know better that problem's section history too.

I think the source of most Meson problems is FIDE Album 1914-44/II, there are more than 30 problems over there. I am looking for more detail review of these tourneys. Maybe an article with greater selection of problems.

Even more interesting, there are 360 problems from Eskilstuna-Kuriren in PDB database, including retros and helpmates. It must've been a very popular column. I am curious who was the editor over there? J.Fridlizius, who was the judge of Trollhattans Schacksallskap tourneys?

Eskilstuna-Kuriren seems like regular newspaper that is still in print today. I'll probably send them an e-mail and ask about chess column.

Don't get confused here. There are three different periodicals involved.

1. Tidskrift för Schack, published in Finland 1890-1891, and
edited by Johannes Öhquist.
(I believe there is a preliminary issue, from 1889, also)

2. Tidsskrift for Skak, published in Denmark 1895-1901.
I know nothing about this periodical.

3. Tidskrift för Schack, published in Sweden 1902--

Nr. 2 and 3 have a certain connection, in that the volume numbering
continues from 2 to 3. As far as I know, there was no editorial continuity.
I think I once noted that the ISSN entry for Nr. 3 included the 1895-1901
period, which I believe is misleading. Claims of high age of Nr. 3 definitely
include that period, which I suppose is based on the volume numbering,
but probably shouldn't be accepted.

Add to this that the Dutch Tijdschrift sometimes gets confused
with one of these periodicals, and vice versa.

More probably in Nya Dagligt Allehanda, column directed by Herman Jonsson in
the 1930s. I find the T.S. 13:th, 14:th and 15:th tourney reports in cuttings from
this newspaper starting from 1930. (No, it isn't published anymore.)

And as to the chess editor of Eskilstuna-Kuriren, Alrik Lundkvist edited it from
1919--1928--?, and Frithiof Lindberg during ?--1945--1957. H. Hultberg was to take
over the column when Lindberg resigned it, but there seems to have been difficulties,
and possibly the column died, at least for a while.

In the early years (1902-- ) when the Collijn brothers published it, I
don't think it had a problem editor: the problem contents was rather
large at the time. Ludvig Collijn was a minor problemist himself, and
Robert Sahlberg was probably involved to some extent as well.

In the late 1920's Henrik Törngren was problem editor, and in the early 1940's
it was Gunnar Andersson. (My collection is obviously rather fragmentary...)

Anders, thanks a lot for the information, but don't spent too much time on it. There were prewar bound volumes of TfS on ebay recently and I was trying to find some information on chess problem content.
