Apr-29-18  zanzibar: Friedrich Wilhelm or Ferdinand Walter?

<In 1867 Ferdinand Walter Pelzer saw the light of day - not realizing that exactly 150 years later he would be remembered in a special way. ...

Funny coincidence that at the turn of the century FW Pelzer founded the first detective agency in Frankfurt. This and many other details could collect the post, but one thing is still a mystery to him today - namely, the counterfeit Pelzers. There simply does not seem to be a picture of the man to whom this year's Frankfurt City Championship is dedicated>

dob 1867 (?) is about right.

Meijner lists him as F.E. Pelzer.

Apr-29-18  zanzibar: Rod Edwards is smart/cautious enough to just use F.W. Pelzer.
Jan-10-19  Chessist: Pelzer, Ferdinand Walter, born Oct-15-1867, died Nov-24-1922, according to KARL 2/2018, pp 26-27.
Apr-01-19  HansDPost: At least two persons on our planet are getting sick when they read the facts on this page. Can someone change the biography above?

KARL 2/2018 is right with the dates for born and death. These origin from official sources detected by the world best internet scout! I was proud to pick all the Information up from her and compiled it in this article.

The real name is Ferdinand Walter Pelzer, or as found in Gaige, F.W.Pelzer. Friedrich Wilhelm is a logical but also poor guess, just hoping that the old German Kaiser had something to do with it.

Pelzer was at least Champion of Frankfurt in 1900 and 1902, while August Flad, not FWP, won the title in 1901.

It could well be the case that FWP won a title in 1903 or even 1904, but no sources are available for a Frankfurt Championship in these years.

Still, I'm looking for a picture of FWP, but even relatives cannot provide even one. He's a mystery!

Any other comments or facts regarding his person are welcome!

  MissScarlett: I'm assuming he's the <W. Pelzer jnr.> who beat Lasker in a simul (+16 -4 =2) in Frankfurt on March 22 1898, as given by <Whyld (1998)>.
