Correspondence Chess Career
"My first correspondence chess games were sometime in 1950's through Al Horowitz's Chess Review magazine (later purchased by the USCF and merged with Chess Life). I played in a few sections, but unfortunately cannot find a record of the games. I continued playing casual postal chess for the next five years or so to compensate for the lack of local OTB tournaments.
But, my real interest in CC began November 1970, when I came across an article by Walter Muir advertising the International Correspondence Chess Federation (ICCF) and the tournaments it sponsored. His description of the road to the World Championship caught my eye. Instantly, I recalled the exciting Chess Life articles by Hans Berliner in the sixties where he described his advance towards the world title. I was captivated and at that moment I decided to "go for it!" More details on the tournaments leading to the world title and games are provided in the article "The Quest for the World Correspondence Chess Championship."
For my performance in the 10th World CC Final, I received the ICCF GM title in 1983. The following year I was officially crowned as the 10th World Correspondence Chess Championship. I was deeply gratified to receive so many notes of congratulations including the one from then President Ronald Reagan. These notes left a warm spot in my heart and I appreciate every one of them.
For my achievements in correspondence chess, in 1993 I was inducted into the U. S. Chess Hall of Fame . Next to Bobby Fischer, I am the youngest member inducted into the Chess Hall of Fame.
And, it all started one cold evening in November 1970."
