Frank Ross Anderson (January 3, 1928 in Edmonton, Alberta -
September 18, 1980 in San Diego, California) was a Canadian
International Master of chess, and a chess writer. He twice won
gold medals at the chess Olympiads, for the best scores on his
board. Anderson tied for the Canadian Chess Championship in 1953
and won this title outright in 1955. Frank Anderson became very ill
with childhood rheumatoid arthritis in Toronto, and learned to play
chess while bedridden. Unable to exercise his body, he exercised
his mind. He first played correspondence chess, becoming a strong
player quite quickly. He was encouraged by chess promoter Bernard
Freedman (who became his first sponsor), his good friend Keith
Kerns and later by John G. Prentice, who served as Canada's
representative to the FIDE, the World Chess Federation. Despite his
physical disability, he graduated in Physics and Mathematics from
the University of Toronto.
