Biographical data
Name: Sharp, Sydney Thomas  
Born: 17 June 1885
Died: 28 Sep. 1953
 
Notes:
Gaige (Chess Tournament Crosstables) gives 'Sharp, S.F.' at Philadelphia 1906, but I presume this is an error for 'Sharp, S.T.'. The Philadelphia Inquirer of 24 June 1906 also has 'S.F. Sharp'. Middle name sent by Edouardo Bauzá Mercére.
