Nenad Petrovic, (September 7, 1907 - November 9, 1989) was one of the greatest composers ever. He was founder and president of the PCCC and founder of 'Problem', the official PCCC magazine.

He made some very interesting problems including castling. His most famous may still be his (at the time of publication incorrect!) following problem.

FEN: r3k2r/p2p4/p1pP2p1/5pN1/5p2/1Q3p2/PP4b1/KB6
(= 7+12 )

To the reminiscence of him I made the following problem using ideas he invented.

FEN: F8/8/8/1P1Pn3/1PpPk1P1/1rp1Pppp/P3PB1r/R3KnN1
(= 12+10 )

Today, 100 years ago, this great master of chess composition was born, he who invented the PCCC and the FIDE albums, who was one of the most important persons of chess history. While he often created retros he didn't forget about his deeds as an official of the PCCC, inventing Problem - the famous FIDE magazine - and more.

Here is a selection of his problems:
