Edith Charlotte Price
Edith Charlotte Price (1872–1956) was a British female chess master.
She enjoyed great success at the British Women's Chess Championship, winning it five times (1922, 1923, 1924, 1928, and 1948). She first played the event in 1912, finishing second and almost took the title in 1920 and 1921, when she narrowly missed out in the play-offs, having placed equal first. Her victory in 1948 at the age of 76 makes her the oldest player ever to win a national championship anywhere in the world, until Viktor Korchnoi won the national Swiss Chess Championship in 2009 at the age of 78.
