For 70 years the U.S. Chess Federation has held the U.S. Junior Open, featuring young players under 21. This book is the first to focus the formative years of these juniors, who later became many of the outstanding masters of the Unites States. Each chapter contains an annotated game of the winner of the championship and brief identifications of the notable players. Crosstables are included where available.
