Does it sound strange when I never heard that name? Maybe he was better known in the VS then in Europe. With all respect ofcourse!

Probably Because . . . . . . he died at 91 and played his best chess half a century ago in the 30's, 40's (when he was twice U.S. Champion), and early 50's (when he got shut out by Bronstein on Bd. 2 in the USA-USSR match--no shame at that time, when Bronstein was probably the strongest player in the world).

He played ... first board in the legendary USA-USSR radio-matches 1945 and 1946 against Botvinnik and Smyslov (I think he lost both matches).
The match against Botvinnik can be found here (commented by Kasparov)
