We own a number of books in which Svetozar Gligorić kindly wrote lengthy (personal) inscriptions. One example:
In his final e-mail message to us, dated 22 May 2012, he mentioned that he was particularly busy and that, as a writer of music and lyrics, he was hurrying to publish his second album in July.
From Michael Nolan (Troy, MI, USA):
‘The above photograph bears witness to my memory of Svetozar Gligorić. (I am seated on the far left. He has just made his move on my board, and I am recording it.) The simultaneous exhibition took place in Livonia, MI on 28 March 1971. I was very fortunate to win my game, and what I most remember from that day was not the victory but rather that his resignation, his congratulations and his offer to sign my score-sheet were as gracious as can be imagined. He was a true gentleman.’

Concerning the role of Gligorić in the Termination, which are the best sources of information published in the Yugoslav press of the time?
Our archives contain (received from a third party many years later) a broad overview by Dragoslav Andrić which may serve as a basis, although it requires factual and linguistic verification throughout:
