  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.

  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.
