Biographical data
Name: Isaacson, Charles B.  
   Also known as: Dr. Charles B. Isaacson
Born: 11 Dec. 1865
Died: 23 Apr. 1909
 
Notes:
The July 1887 issue of the International Chess Magazine has 'Dr. H.B. Isaacson' of Manhattan, on p.201, but 'Dr. Charles B. Isaacson' on p.209. I presume the former is an error.
