California Remembers Emory Tate
Today I had the sad honor of hosting a memorial event for International Emory Tate. This West Coast tribute to Emory was attended by many of his best friends and students. It was an inspirational afternoon and everyone who attended left with a better understanding of the man we were fortunate to befriend. At the end of the event, I announced a Torres Chess and Music Academy Scholarship in Emory’s name and also pledged to help Eric Schiller keep Emory’s memory alive through a new book about his life and games. I am deeply grateful to Janine Tate, James Paquette, Eric Schiller and Achiever Institute for their fantastic job helping me to organize such a moving tribute.
Below is the program from Emory’s memorial for those who were not able to attend today’s tribute:
