Heiner Marxen,
a German computer scientist, programmer and author of Chest, a Program for Solving Orthodox Chess Problems [1]. Heiner is a well known Busy Beaver expert [2]. Additionally he introduced a method to compute Rook Paths Puzzles [3]. In 1973, he has written the first precursor of Chest, written in Fortran-II (no recursion) to solve mate-in-two problems [4]. It did not need or use any tapes and ran on an IBM-1130 with 32 K bytes, and took half an hour for one job [5].
