Biographical data
Name: Kempa-Pieczonka, Albert  
   Also known as: Albert Pieczonka; Albert Kempa; Prof. Kempa-Pieczonka
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Name given variously as 'Pieczonka', 'Piectzouka', 'Pleczonka'. Some sources (like the New York Recorder of 23 Feb. 1894) list the player at the New York State Chess Association general tournament of 1894 as 'Kempa' instead of Pieczonka. I presume that this is Prof. A. Kempa-Pieczonka, as listed in the Columbia Chess Chronicle of 16 June 1888 (p.12), also referred to as Pieconzka-Campa in the New York Recorder of 13 Jan. 1895.
