Name: Mechanics Institute Championship
Place: San Francisco
Start date: 1919
End date: 20 Feb. 1919
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. The American Chess Bulletin of May-June 1919 (p.156) gives the scores of just the top three. The scores are out of 16, so this could be consistent with a 17-player single-round all-play-all tournament, in which the other 14 players would have an average score of 7.26, or a 9-player double-round all-play-all tournament, in which the other 6 players would have an average score of 6.33. I will guess at the latter, which seems slightly more likely, but this could be an error.
