Dec-17-04  clendenon: Could this Philipp Meitner be the father of the great German scientist Lise Meitner? Anyone know?
Dec-17-04  Dillinger: I think the answer is yes. Lise Meiner's father was named Philipp and socialized with Vienna's chess playing elite.

  pawn to QB4: Googling "Lise Meitner" gave me the following from the first three sites: #1. Wikipedia: "As with many early female scientists, her parents were opposed to her entering university". #2. Lise Meitner: A Battle for Ultimate Truth: "Owing to Austrian restrictions on female education...she only entered university in 1901" <aged 22> #3. "Her parents placed great value on education...<she> was able to pass the entrance exams for Vienna university <and> graduated having written her thesis in the conduction of heat in inhomogeneous solids...it was highly theoretical....realising there would be little work in Vienna, she moved to Berlin, living off an allowance from her generous and sympathetic parents". Hey, maybe Wikipedia gave P Meitner less than his due and he's one of us. Anyone able to shed more light before I try to correct their site?

  pawn to QB4: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-sr.... I rest my case. A man of whom chess can be proud, a worthy father of a heroine of science.
Mar-05-08  wrap99: Could, based on the games included here, Meitner be called a chess master?

This would be an interesting addition to wikipedia entry on L. Meitner.

His historical Elo was 2380.

His most famous game was the "Immortal Draw", black vs Carl Hamppe

Meitner played in two strong international tournaments in Vienna in 1873 and 1882. He tied for 7-8th in the first tournament (Wilhelm Steinitz Wilhelm Steinitz

  waustad: Just looking at the W-L-D probably doesn't tell enough about his strength. His opponents in the database look like a who's who of latter 19th century chess.
Feb-22-12  Eastfrisian: Any photo of him ?

  Karpova: Information from the obituary <Dr. Meitners letzte Schachpartie>:

On December 9, 1910, Dr. Philipp Meitner suddenly died at the age of 72. He had been a member of the Vienna Chess Club for more than 40 years. It's described how he managed to draw Schlechter. It ends with the remark that his eigth game against Schlechter he finished without losing (this possibly indicates that he lost the preceding 7 games and that the draw against Schlechter was his last chessgame ever).
