One of the bloggers just made a very interesting point: World Champion vs. World #1 Ranking

When was the last time a Classical World Champion not the #1 rated player in the world (at the start of the World Championship match or after)?

Kasparov was #1
Karpov was #1
Fischer was #1

This takes us back to at least 35 years ago. How far back can we go?
