|Nov-01-11|| ||Karpova: From C.N. 7158
Foot was a good friend of Steinitz.
Her death (according to her obituary on pages 253-254 of the December 1914 'American Chess Bulletin'):
<‘It was a very stormy evening and, carrying an umbrella, Miss Foot evidently was at a great disadvantage with respect to any vehicles that might be passing. One suddenly bore around the corner at high speed, killing her outright. The fact that the driver of the machine made his escape placed the tragedy on the same plane as a wanton, cold-blooded murder.’>

|Oct-20-14|| ||ljfyffe: In 1909 she lived at the Martha Washington Hotel, 29 East 29th Street, New York City, and advertised her ability to give lessons on chess for boys and girls.
Foot and Harriet Worrall of Brooklyn were among the first to promote chess for women.|

I knew Bobby Fischer.
He was a friend of mine.
You, <Missy>, are no Bobby Fischer.
|Feb-23-16|| ||MissScarlett: Oh yes, I'm superior to Bobby Fischer. If, when, I choose to deny/revise the Holocaust, or parts thereof, I'll make a damn sight better job of it than he did. Naturally, I expect to win; I always win.|
|Feb-24-16|| ||Sally Simpson: I'm just passing through and read the Bio about being the first American female to publish a chess book.|
'How to Play Chess' by Charlotte Boardman Rogers (New York, 1907).
Apparently Charlotte ((1878-1962) was an American so published two years earlier.
That book is one of the few that have Kieseritzky winning the Immortal game.
