Biographical data
Name: Cruikshank, R.J.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'R. Cruikshank' of the Zingari Chess Club, whose problem appeared in the Mar. 1861 issue of the Chess Player's Chronicle (p.80), is the Cruikshank who played in Paulsen's blindfold simultaneous exhibition in London in Dec. 1861 and who played at the St. James Club Handicap earlier in 1861. The Era of 31 Jan. 1864 (p.14) has 'R.J. Cruickshank'.
