Please help me fix an old wooden chair

An old, well built chair failed under heavy load.

I'd like to fix it.

I've glued the split, and intend to screw in a contoured piece of wood so the next split doesn't occur.

Should I do something else? Main point – I'd like to fix the back rest. Both portions broke. I don't know any good approach to this problem. I thought I'd drill and pin both portions.
