Written by Michael McDowell   

Christopher John Feather was born on 24th March 1947 in Chester. A languages graduate, he was for many years a schoolmaster. Since 1967 he has composed over 1600 problems, mostly helpmates, a field in which he is the leading British exponent and an acknowledged expert. In 1994 he published Black to Play, the first attempt at developing a systematic theory of the modern helpmate. Much of his work has been published in home-produced pamphlets with names like Moultings, Pluckings and Broodings.
