Albert Whiting Fox, 1881-1964, was one of America's greatest players in the early 20th century. He won the Brooklyn Chess Club championship in 1904 and the Manhattan Chess Club championship in 1905/06. In Cambridge Springs in 1904 he won with Chigorin, Schlechter and Janovsky, among others. In 1915 Capablanca said of him that he was one of the best players he had ever seen. After 1920 he took a break from chess, devoted himself to journalism, and returned to chess briefly in the 1940s and 1950s. The book presents 185 of Fox's games, mostly annotated, played between 1900 and 1958.
