Giblert Dobbs (1867-1941) had composed an astonishing number of 2,500 problems, great numbers of them very charming and attractive pieces. He loved the simpler combinations of pure or model mates in three-move form, and turned out literally hundreds of examples, which one could always counted upon to be well worth the solving. Dobbs went on to become a minister in Georgia. (ACB: 1941)
