Research notes: 1) Anderson's achievement at the 1958 Olympiad for best percentage, Board 2, did not receive FIDE's award, which was given only for the best point total. 2) Anderson claimed that he would have qualified for the International Grandmaster title if illness (an attack of influenza) had not prevented him from playing in the last round of the 1958 Olympiad; the result of the game did not even matter. However, a recent examination based on the rules then in effect does not support this claim. Much later, FIDE changed its rules to prevent this situation.
