As far as I recall, that quote is from the late 1960s or early 1970s, just before the Fischer inspired boom.
1969 according to Mike

It appears quite possible that there will no OTB chess in the UK in second half of 2020.
It is also possible that some households with at least 2 graded players could play arrange to play some graded chess.

The late Dennis Hemsley's grade seemed to me to be a pretty accurate reflection of his true strength.
