The premier variantist Thomas Raynor Dawson, 1889-1951, had 0 CVs. I.e., T.R. Dawson had no CVs that I know of as complete rules set. What would be the point if full rules set or other would be played once or twice a year or only dozens a century? Dawson was no mere artist but activist. Instead Dawson did problems usually featuring own inventions, such as Nightrider(Dawson), Grasshopper(Dawson), Vao(Dawson), Maximummer(all pieces), in so-called ''fairies,'' what problems of fairy chess are called, as self-mates, helpmates, reflexmates, seriesmovers etc. This quarter, as archivist, I will dig out the full recapitulation having 30 time the information as above, the summary of achievements unfortunately from the announcement in 1951 British Chess Magazine.
