My research tells me, that FIDE has only started rating players from 1970/71 on.[1] Background Knowledge There are multiple databases listing players, for example OlympBase, which contains the ratings of all (?) FIDE-registered players from 1971-2001, after which year, one can consult the current FIDE-list (which doesn't store ratings before then, apparently)...
