Hall of Fame

The U.S. Chess Trust’s Support for the World Chess Hall of Fame and Museum (A Brief History)

The U.S. Chess Trust’s support for the World Chess Hall of Fame dates all the way back to its establishment in New Windsor, NY, when current U.S. Chess Trust Trustee, E. Stephen Doyle was President of the United States Chess Federation.

The Chess Trust bought the Hall of Fame from the US Chess Federation and arranged for it to be housed first at Washington D.C. and then at Miami, Florida.

The U.S. Chess Trust owns many of the exhibits in the World Chess Hall of Fame and Museum.

Persons inducted into the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame must first be approved by the Trustees of the U.S. Chess Trust.

Now, Trustee Rex Sinquefield has been instrumental in facilitating the World Chess Hall of Fame’s move to Saint Louis, which is scheduled to be completed later this year.

All of the U.S. Chess Trust trustees are proud to have our association with the World Chess Hall of Fame.
