German chess has sustained another loss in the death, at the age of 55, of C. Leffmann, of Cologne, one of the strongest amateurs of the Rhineland. Herr Leffmann's vocation did not admit of his devoting more than his holiday time to public play; his efforts were mostly confined to local practice, and his name figured rarely in the list of the congresses of the German Chess Association; on the rare occasions, however, when he took part in tournaments, he was found to be a dangerous opponent even to the best. During his career in the army, he took a leading part at the chess club in Dusseldorf, together with the late Herr Schnitzler (a resident in London up to his death, a few years ago) and the Herren Pflaum; and later, in Cologne, together with Hammacher, the late Wemmers, and C. Kocklekorn, the celebrated problem composer. He became a master after winning the first prize at the West German Congress, Crefeld, 1871; and played subsequently at the Leipsic Congress of the German Chess Association, 1877; and at the Nuremburg Congress, 1883. Besides chess, he devoted his leisure hours to poetry and music, and he published several valuable poems and songs.— The Field.> - BCM v11 p460
