Clyde E. Love (1882–1960[1]) was an American contract bridge author and mathematics professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is well known in bridge circles for his 1959 book Bridge Squeezes Complete, one of the earliest efforts to codify then-existing squeeze play. Love established rules for recognizing bridge squeezes, and for executing them when they occurred. His system of classifying squeezes has been used by most bridge writers since.[2] He was also author of many magazine articles.[1]
