Herbert Seidman was a Senior Master. He was born in New York City. At his peak, he was ranked among the top ten players in the country. He played several times in the U.S. Championship.
Seidman participated in the historic USA vs USSR radio chess match in early September 1945, in which the ten leading masters of the United States played the ten leading masters of the Soviet Union. Playing on eighth board, Seidman lost both games to Viacheslav Ragozin.
Seidman won the New York State Championship in 1961 (jointly with Benko) and in 1971.
