  MissScarlett: NYT, September 2nd, 1938:

<Silas Wilder Howland, noted lawyer, member of the firm of Guggenheim Brothers, 120 Broadway, mining industrialists, and a leading amateur chess player, died of a heart attack yesterday at his home in Rye, N. Y. Mr. Howland was 59 years old.>

<BDE>, June 9th, 1932, p.30:

<The Rye Chess and Checker Club of Rye, N.Y., held its first annual dinner at the local Y.M.C.A., at which Frank J. Marshall was the guest of honor. The United States champion gave an exhibition of simultaneous play against 31 opponents, winning 26 games, losing two to Silas W. Howland, vice president of the club, and Seymour Schammock of Port Chester, and drawing three with Kenneth Grover, David Hoffman and Charles E. Dowd, tournament director of the club.

Marshall was introduced by Mr. Howland, who in his younger days played on the Harvard varsity team.>
