2017.08.16_The NY sun go article April 12, 1914
Promoting U.S. go in 1914: “If we Americans should adopt the game of go, the national game of Japan, it might do us a lot of good,” Lee Foster Hartman told T2017.08.16_caliban's-warhe Sun in an article published in the New York City paper on April 12, 1914. Check it out here.  Thanks to Catherine Fricheteau, who posted this on Facebook.

Caliban’s War: “It’s like playing go. It’s all about exerting influence. Controlling the board without occupying it.” That’s from James S. A. Corey’s “Caliban’s War (The Expanse Book 2, page 332),” which Garrett Smith says features “A discussion about political influence illustrated with our favorite game. Book series is basis for Expanse TV series on SyFy.”
