Waldemar Von Zedtwitz (May 8, 1896 - October 5, 1984) was one of the greatest figures in the history of contract bridge. In 1970, he won a world title. He also won several national titles. He helped found the World Bridge Federation and revised the laws of the game.
In the original version of Bridgette, Waldemar is credited with the development of the game from the original design of Joel Gaines.
He died in Hawaii at the age of 88.
