Notes:
Nick Pope cites The Sun (New York) of 1890.12.10, which gives 'Prof. Holladay' as an umpire for Steinitz in his match with Gunsberg, and The World (New York) of 1890.12.10, which gives 'Mr. Waller Halliday [sic]' as one of Steinitz' umpires (the '[sic]' is Pope's). Hilbert gives 'Holladay' at the New York State Chess Association tournament in 1891. Reichhelm gives 'Prof. Halladay' in the Franklin vs. Manhattan club match of 1895. According to Hillyer, the book of the 6th American Chess Congress in New York, 1889, lists 'Holladay' as one of the committee members responsible for the publication.
