Walter Penn Shipley was crucial to the development of chess in the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He organized correspondence chess in the 1890s, became a talented player and dangerous opponent, and a friend and supporter of world champions and contenders. He served as the treasurer of the Franklin Chess Club in Philadelphia and later as the club's president at the height of its prestige. This work is a complete biography and games collection of Walter Penn Shipley. It draws from such original documents as personal correspondence with great chess players of his era (Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca, Pillsbury and others), detailed Shipley family records, and extensive research conducted in contemporary newspapers, journals and magazines.
