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.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
