Arthur Dake (1910-2000) was the first U.S. player to beat a sitting world champion, Alexander Alekhine of France, and that just five years after learning the game from Russian immigrants at Portland's YMCA. He played on gold-medal-winning American Olympiad teams in 1931, '33 and '35 and was inducted into the U.S. Chess Federation Hall of Fame in 1991.
