  MissScarlett: The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, January 6th, 1949, p.32:

<The death is announced of John W. Brunnemer, a former champion of the Brooklyn Chess Club, who was widely known in correspondence chess circles. Since leaving Brooklyn he had lived at Nyack and only recently moved into a new home at Oradell, N.J. He was a musician and, in business, was connected with the coffee trade. His age was 51.>

Brunnemer's first mention in the <BDE> occurred in 1914 (16th November, p.18) upon the announcement of his father's death, aged 44, under the factually correct headline: <DROPS DEAD PLAYING BASEBALL>.

<The Pasack Valley Chess Club opened the season on October 6 with seventeen members. A short business meeting was held prior to the play and John Brunnemer, New Jersey champion, was elected president. [...] Brunnemer showed his appreciation of the honor paid him by decisively beating twelve other members of the club in a simultaneous exhibition.>
