Event table notes

Event data
Name: Franklin Chess Club - Manhattan Chess Club Match
Place: Philadelphia or New York (?)
Start date: 30 May 1903
End date: 30 May 1903
 
Notes:
Urcan cites the New York Times of 31 May 1903, but his list of results differs from the result as given there in several ways. Many of the names of players in the New York Times report are badly garbled, but it is evident that where Urcan has a draw Roething - Voigt (which would be a second game for both of those players) and a win by Delmar over Elson (which would again be a second game for both players), the New York Times has a draw between Pulvermacher and Stadelman, and a win by Raubitschek over McGee. The report in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 1 Jun. 1903 does not give complete results, but is mostly consistent with the New York Times, except that it mentions a win by 'Varrath' [sic, Vorrath] of Manhattan, in place of Hanham. I take the New York Times report to be correct, apart from the awful spellings of names. I am guessing that the player named 'Smythe' here was J.H. Smythe, but there was also an F. Smyth in Philadelphia, and it might have been him.
