Philadelphia’s Friend of Chess

Walter Penn Shipley was crucial to the development of chess in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He organized correspondence chess in the United States in the 1890s, was a talented player and was a friend of world champions and contenders.

He served as the president of the Franklin Chess Club in Philadelphia at the height of its power and prestige. This work is a complete biography and games collection of Walter Penn Shipley.

It draws from original documents — correspondence with Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca, Pillsbury and others, detailed Shipley family records — and extensive research conducted in contemporary newspapers, journals and magazines.

The book contains approximately 250 games, most of them annotated  with 246 positional diagrams.
