John Hilbert

What makes a graduate of three law schools and federal patent attourney become involved in bootlegging, drug dealing, blackmail, car theft and much more?

John Hilbert has had access to crates of documents relating to Whitaker's life and has produced this deeply researched account of a man who was one of the strongest US chess players during the 1920s but whose misdemeanours lead to spells in prisons across the U.S.A., including Alcatraz.

The book includes a detailed biography, photographs and 570 of Whitaker's games. A gripping account of an incredible life.

Published 2000, hardback, 485 pages.
