Research for this project started, and the initial list was drawn up, early in 1975. R.G.Wade is responsible for the writing of and opinions given in the biographical material. There are many quotations from Chess is My Life (Batsford), Seven Veils written in Russian by Vik Vasiliyev and translated for us by Dr. K.P.Neat, and from Korchnoi's article "A Year in the West" in Jan. 1978 Chess Life and Review.
