## Loyd, Sam (1841–1911)Loyd became a full-time professional puzzlemaker only in the 1890s. He corresponded with his English counterpart Henry Dudeney and worked alongside his son Sam Loyd Jr. After the death of his father, Sam Loyd Jr. continued publishing puzzles that were mainly compilations of his father's work and in 1914 issued a now out-of-print and much sought-after mammoth collection of his father's puzzles called Cyclopedia of Puzzles.^{1}
