Biographical data
Name: Rocamora, Salomón Ricardo  
   Also known as: S. Riccardo-Rocamora
Born: 7 Feb. 1855
Died: 1923
 
Notes:
Gaige gives 'Riccardo-Rocamora, S.' but also 'Rocamora, S.R.'. Di Felice gives 'Rocamora, S. Riccardo'. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives 'Rocamora Riccardo S.' Urcan gives 'R.S. Rocamora'. I received correspondence from Eduardo Bauzá Mercére giving Rocamora's first name and explaining that the correct form of his name is 'Salomón Ricardo Rocamora', a Sephardic Jewish name of Spanish origin ('Riccardo' is Italian). Gaige gives only a birth date, but Mercére has supplied the year of death as 1923.
