FOX, Albert Whiting

  amadeus: ONE hot summer’s day A Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch.

"Just the things to quench my thirst," quoth he.

Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying:

"I am sure they are sour."

Albert Whiting Fox (29 April 1881 – 29 April 1964) was an American chess master.

Born in Boston, he spent a few years in Germany, <studying mathematics>. By the end of his sojourn in Europe, he won several brilliant games in Paris (Café de la Régence), Antwerp, and Heidelberg in 1900/01.

"The brilliant tactician who played so well against the foreign contingent assembled at Cambridge Springs 1904, defeating David Janowski, Carl Schlechter, Mikhail Chigorin, Richard Teichmann and Thomas Francis Lawrence in the process, learned of the death of his younger brother, Franklin Fox, a soldier during the Great War. At the time Albert Fox was a special correspondent with the <Washington Post>, as he had been since 1916 (personal communication to the author by Isabel Fox, daughter of Albert Fox)."

  wwall: Albert Fox won the 1905-1906 Manhattan Chess Club championship.

  Phony Benoni: Unfammiliar today, he played in only one tournament after age 30. But as a youngster, he had an extremely brilliant touch. Try these two games, bot played by the age of 20:

A W Fox vs H E Bauer, 1901

Segal vs A W Fox, 1900

Apr-29-15  DiscoJew: As clever as a fox. Cool last name for chess.

And rest in peace.
