Allan Calhamer (KAL'-uh-mehr), whose 1950s board game "Diplomacy" garnered a loyal following over the years that reportedly included President John F. Kennedy, Henry Kissinger and Walter Cronkite, among others, has died. He was 81.
As a kid rooting around in the attic of his boyhood home, Allan Calhamer stumbled across an old book of maps and became entranced by faraway places that no longer existed, such as the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires.
"That brought everything together," Calhamer told the magazine.
Calhamer said in a 2009 interview with Chicago magazine that reading the book recalled for him the atlas in his parents' attic.
