FM William Morrison is considered a chess legend and has trod a worn-out path on the east coast of the U.S. Known as “The Exterminator” he is revered in New York, Philly, Baltimore and the DC area and renown for his blitz prowess.
Recently, Morrison and his family were victims of a house fire which caused extensive damage to their Maryland home. Players from the Philadelphia area decided to hold a fundraiser to help him in a time of crisis.
According to FM Norman Rogers, about 50 players from the east coast came out to North Philly and showed their moral and financial support. NM Glenn Bady took photos and they can be viewed on his Facebook page.
