Samuel Reshevsky

Samuel Reshevsky was born in Poland on November 26, 1911 and started to play chess at the age of four.

He came to the U.S. permanently at age nine (1920). From 1924 to 1931 he quit chess completely to get an education in the U.S., and graduated from the University of Chicago in 1934 (he got a accounting degree and did well as an accountant).

Reshevsky then moved to New York for the rest of his life, married Norma Mindick (they had three children), and spent the rest of his days doing his job (he was never a chess pro) and playing chess whenever possible.
