"Although the official title of World Champion did not exist in his time, Paul Morphy, who was born Jun-22-1837 in New Orleans, died Jul-10-1884, was and is widely regarded as the strongest player of his day. Even today his games are studied for their principles of open lines and quick development, and his influence on the modern game is undeniable". Selected games from Morphy are presented. Many consider the match against Adolf Anderssen to be for the World Championship. See Benzol's Game Collection: WCC Index ( Morphy - Anderssen 1858 ) and Game Collection: WCC Index ( Morphy - Harrwitz 1858 ).
