Now, both books have been captured in full on this CD, with additional content. With his books Elmars Zemgalis (GM without a Title) and Olaf Ulvestad (An American Original), America's International Master John Donaldson brought the lives of two masters from his home town Seattle close to broad readership.
Both players had strong ties to Europe. Born in Latvia, Zemgalis lived in Germany after World War II and celebrated his greatest triumphs there, before he emigrated to the USA in 1952. Ulvestad was American by birth, yet this ancestors originated from Norway. His remarkable appearance on the chess scene was at the legendary match Soviet Union - USA in Moscow in 1946. Ulvestad's authentic report on this event is included on the CD. Later, he also was to live in Europe for many years.
