HOROWITZ, ISRAEL ALBERT
HOROWITZ, ISRAEL ALBERT (1907–1973), U.S. and international professional chessmaster. Horowitz twice won the U.S. chess championship (1936, 1948). Though not in the same class as Samuel *Reshevsky, who defeated him decisively in a 1941 match, or Bobby *Fischer, Horowitz successfully represented the U.S. in four Olympiads and several international tournaments and matches. In 1948, he acted as Reshevsky's trainer. Horowitz published a large number of propaedeutic volumes on the game – several in collaboration with Fred Reinfeld. He was also editor, for many years, of the successful publication Chess Review.
