About Arthur Ford Mackenzie

This site tells the story of a remarkable man who was born and died in Kingston, Jamaica, and who achieved a world-wide reputation as a composer of chess problems. This site provides an opportunity of restoring him to a proper place in Jamaica's historical record. He died on June 23rd, 1905, a hundred and four years ago.

Arthur Ford Mackenzie was one of the most unusual men Jamaica has produced. He was indeed a Jamaican: although his parents were from England, he was born in Kingston on October 6 1861, and he died in Kingston on June 23 1905. There is no indication that he ever left the island, maybe never even travelling further than Spanish Town.
