On the ChessCafe website, they've reposted a 1999 article by Lev Khariton celebrating David Bronstein's 75 birthday. Bronstein has since passed away, but he will, or at least should, be long remembered by chess fans. Those already familiar with Bronstein will enjoy the article, while those who aren't are even more strongly encouraged to have a look.
I also see on the ChessCafe website that Wednesday (as of this writing, that's today for some of you, tomorrow for the rest of us) would have been Efim Geller's 86th birthday. Like Bronstein, he was one of the absolutely greatest players never to become world champion. How great was Geller? He played more than two hundred games with world champions from Euwe to Kasparov, and had an overall plus score. If you're not familiar with Geller, then have a look at his Wikipedia page and check out the games and links.
