    Book Introduction:

    The Golden Treasury of Chess is one of the most popular and most often reprinted and revised chess books ever created. It is filled with hundreds of the most thrilling, exciting and surprising chess games ever played. It also includes articles about chess history and stories about how these great games came to be played. It has also become one of the most controversial chess books ever written. The controversy arises over the question of who is the true author of the work. This controversy is explained by Chess Historian Edward Winter in his column "Chess Notes", in an article entitled "The Horowitz-Wellmuth Affair".

    About the Author(s)The name of Francis J. Wellmuth seems to be otherwise unknown. However, in response to the article by Edward Winter, Rusty Miller of Camas, Washington, USA researched genealogy websites and found a death record for a person named Frank J. Wellmuth: born on 27 January 1866 in Missouri and died on 29 December 1943 in California. His mother's surname was given as Ferney. The federal census of 1880 listed a Frank Welmouth (born circa 1866 in Missouri) who was attending school in Saint Joseph, Missouri and living with his mother, Celia Welmouth, a widow, and his siblings.
