|Sir Theodore Henry Tylor (13 May 1900 - 23 October 1968) was an outstanding lawyer and international level chess player - all the more impressive since he was near-blind. In 1965 he was knighted for his service to organisations for the blind. He was Fellow and Tutor in Jurisprudence at Balliol College, Oxford for almost forty years.|
Tylor competed in twelve British Championships, finishing 3rd to Sultan Khan in 1933. He played on board 5 in the England team at the Hamburg 1930 Chess Olympiad. He won the British Correspondence Chess Championship in 1932, 1933 and 1934 and the Hastings 1929/30 Premier Reserves alongside Koltanowski ahead of Flohr. As an undergraduate he captained the Oxford University chess team.
