From the Hastings and St Leonards Observer - Saturday 08 August 1953...

Chess 'World Citizen'
In support of his claim to be "a citizen of the world," Dr. J. A. Seitz, who is competing in the Major Open event of the British Chess Federation Coronation Chess Congress at the Town Hall next week, can quote some very interesting facts. He was born in Bavaria, lives in Norway, represents the Italian Chess Federation and is a life member of the British Chess Federation. Before the last war he lived in Argentina. A polyglot, he can speak in praise of chess in almost any language. Despite his international outlook, Dr. Seitz admits a liking for this country. "I was the first German to play in England after the first World War," is his proud claim. This he did at the London 1922 Congress. Asked which of all places in England he likes best he replied: "Hastings takes a lot of beating,*' which is high praise indeed from "a citizen of the world."
