    This will be a pile of published games from various sources as I come across them. Of course, many of the classic games have been printed and reprinted in multiple sources. I can only list it once here under one source.

    Disclaimer: I am relying upon the notes of other bloggers. In most cases, I am not confirming the game source... just taking their word for it.

    Salute to Irving Chernev and I.A. Horowitz, two terrific chess writers from days gone by. They brought the light of day to many wonderful games.

    Here is a brief description of some of the writers/players according to crawfb5. Thank you crawfb5 -- what great collections you have!


    Samuel Reshevsky -- Reshevsky was a famous child prodigy who gave up competitive play for several years to focus on his education. After returning to active play in the 1930s, Reshevsky dominated the US championship until the ascendence of Robert James Fischer in the late 1950s. Reshevsky had an unusually long playing career. Reshevsky played on eight US Olympiad teams, winning one team gold, one team bronze, and one individual bronze medal (

    Reuben Fine -- Fine was a world-class player that never won the US championship. His best international result would be equal first with Paul Keres at AVRO 1938. He was invited to the world championship tournament organized in 1948 to pick a successor to Alexander Alekhine, who died while holding the title. Fine decided not to play. He was involved in his graduate work in psychology and only played competitive chess for a few more years after earning his degree. Fine played on three US Olympiad teams, winning three team and one individual gold medal and one individual silver medal (

    Israel Albert Horowitz -- Horowitz was long-time editor of <Chess Review>, chess editor of the <New York Times> for many years, author of a number of chess books, and a fixture in US tournaments, particularly those in the northeast. He won the US Open in 1936, 1938, and 1943. Horowitz played on four US Olympiad teams, winning three team and two individual gold medals (

    Isaac Kashdan -- Despite being a world-class player in his day, Kashdan was never able to negotiate a championship match with Marshall and once the tournament began he would never win the US championship. He was robbed of the title in 1942 by an incorrect ruling in a critical game between Reshevsky and Denker, which meant Reshevsky tied Kashdan for first instead of Kashdan winning the tournament outright. Kashdan lost the playoff match to Reshevsky, and that was as close as he would ever come to being US champion. Kashdan took over as chess editor for the <Los Angeles Times> after Steiner's death. Kashdan became an International Arbiter after his active playing days and directed both Game Collection: First Piatigorsky Cup 1963 and Game Collection: Second Piatigorsky Cup 1966. Kashdan played on five US Olympiad teams, winning three team and two individual gold medals, one team and one individual silver medal, and two individual bronze medals (

    Arthur William Dake -- Dake was on three gold-medal US Olympiad teams, winning one individual gold and one individual silver medal (

    David S Polland -- Polland won both the NY state championship and the US Open (4th American Chess Federation) in 1937. In 1938, he tied for 1st with Frank Marshall in the Marshall Chess Club championship.

    Sidney Norman Bernstein -- Bernstein was active in and around New York City and played in eight US championship tournaments.

    Anthony Santasiere -- Santasiere would win the NY state championship several times and the 1945 US Open.

    S S Cohen -- Samuel S. Cohen was an editor at <Chess Review> for a number of years in the 1930s.

    Milton Loeb Hanauer -- Hanauer played on one US Olympiad team, winning a team silver medal (

    Fred Reinfeld -- Reinfeld is mostly remembered today for his numerous beginner's books, but he won the NY state championship twice and played in several US championships.

    Harold Morton -- Morton was New England champion several times and was also Horowitz's business partner at <Chess Review> at the time of his death. The two were on an exhibition and promotional tour in the midwest in 1940 when they were involved in an automobile accident in Iowa. Morton was killed and Horowitz seriously injured.
