Épée Birthday to You!

by George Barany

This "mid-week level" puzzle was released on a date of particular significance to the puzzle's honoree (shown to the right in a picture from 1971). Those unfamiliar with the honoree will have to get his name from fair crossings, but otherwise, no specialized knowledge is required. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about him and his family by clicking here.
