    Yep. The problem appeared in an article titled "Stalemate" in Chess Notes 1999, where it is attributed to The Kipping Chess Club Year Book 1943-1944. I found it in Edward Winter, A Chess Omnibus, a compilation of Chess Notes articles.

    I'd like to see other examples of a forced en passant capture.
