Atlantic City 1921
Compiled by crawfb5
--*--

under construction --

Atlantic City 1921 -- 8th American Chess Congress -- the usual online suspects have <no> games -- the main sources have been the 1921 <American Chess Bulletin> and the <Brooklyn Daily Eagle>. With Helms editing both as well as directing the tournament itself, one would think more games would have been printed. Some additional games were found by John Hilbert, published in his biography of Whitaker, his chapter on Atlantic City in his <Essays> book, and a couple of online articles. Thanks to <The Focus> and some people at <rec.games.chess.misc> for checking various sources looking for additional games.

These games were published in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, from early July to mid-August, 1921. Twelve also appear in the 1921 American Chess Bulletin (indicated by *).

These games were in Hilbert's chapter on Atlantic City in his "Essays" book and not found in the Bulletin or the Eagle.

These last two were from a web article on Sournin that cite two articles in the Washington Post from July of 1921 as sources.

Two games each were published in the British Chess Magazine in 1921 and 1922, but they were games also found in the Bulletin.
