Lombardy Documentary

This video appears to have been published at the same time I was looking for a selection for this current edition of Video Friday. It said 'No views'!

WILLIAM LOMBARDY - WikiVidi Documentary (12:48) • 'William James Joseph Lombardy was an American chess grandmaster, chess writer, teacher, and Catholic priest.'

The description continued,

He was one of the leading American chess players during the 1950s and 1960s, and a contemporary of Bobby Fischer, whom he coached from the time Fischer was age 11½ through the World Chess Championship 1972. Lombardy led the U.S. Student Team to Gold in the 1960 World Student Team Championship in Leningrad. He was the only World Junior Champion to win with a perfect score. After attending the City College of New York for three years, Lombardy received his B.A. in philosophy, an M.A. in ethics, and an M.Div., all from Saint Joseph's Seminary . He also studied educational psychology at Saint Louis University....

The 'documentary' sounds like it is read electronically from another source. At about 2:20 into the clip, the text is the same as the anecdote I used last week from Lombardy's book, 'Understanding Chess'; see that post, Understanding Lombardy, for more.
