Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
3rd World Correspondence Chess Championship (1959)
The 3rd final took place over the period February 1st 1959 to February 1st 1962. There were no preliminary groups in this championship. The 1956 Amsterdam congress of the ICCF (International Correspondence Chess Federation) decided to invite:

a) The first three living players from Final 1 (1st World Correspondence Chess Championship (1950)). Harald Malmgren had passed away so invitations were sent to Cecil John Seddon Purdy, Dr. Mario Napolitano and Olaf Barda.

b) The first six players in Final 2 (2nd World Correspondence Chess Championship (1956)).

c) Dr. Janos Balogh, who had qualified for both the earlier Finals.

d) The selected representatives of the five ICCF zones.

The invitations were sent out in 1958. Purdy and Barda from the first final and Eric Alfons Arnlind, Viacheslav Ragozin and Lothar Schmid from the second final declined to play so the third final became the smallest of the World Correspondence Championship finals.

The qualifiers from the second final who accepted were Endzelins, Kjellander and Lundqvist.

The five zonal representatives were Garner from North America, Secchi from South America, Salm from Australia, Dubinin from the Soviet Union, and O'Kelly from Europe.
