  MissScarlett: The <ACB>, April 1910, p.107:

<Bradford B. Jefferson, a brother of Miss Rosa B. Jefferson, chess editor of the <Commercial-Appeal> of that city, was placed second in spite of heavy handicaps. Speaking of Mr. Jefferson, who is the champion of Tennessee, the <News Scimitar> says, "Mr Jefferson is without doubt the strongest player in the South, and a Southern tournament, so badly needed, would establish this fact as clearly as the sun's rays dispel the dark.">
