Biographical data
Name: Ilyin-Zhenevsky, Alexander Fedorovich  
   Also known as: Ilyin-Genevsky; Alexander Ilyin; A. Ilyine
Born: 28 Nov. 1894
Died: 3 Sep. 1941
 
Notes:
He was originally Alexander Fedorovich Ilyin, and I record his early results under this name separately here, because in 1915 he lost his memory as a result of shell shock and had to re-learn chess from scratch.
