FOX, Albert Whiting
|Jan-05-09|| ||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)."

<Lieut. Franklin Gray Fox, brother of Albert W. Fox, Washington newspaperman, has been killed in action according to a cable from General Pershing. Lieutenant Fox was in an airplane which caught fire. Both Fox and the pilot were killed.
Lieutenant Fox was a member of Pershing's staff.
Before entering the service Lieutenant Fox was on the staff of the Philadelphia Evening Ledger. After repeated efforts to enlist, he obtained a commission as second lieutenant and sailed for France last January.
Charles James Fox, another brother of Lieutenant Fox, is a professor of international law at the University of Peiyang, Tienstin, China.>
|Jan-30-18|| ||MissScarlett: <It is difficult to know what to make of all this. Fox would certainly be fortunate to have a correspondent (anonymous) so conveniently placed to relate his exploits at home and abroad.>|
The identity of this correspondent is (surely) revealed by the New Orleans <Times-Democrat> of June 16th 1901, Sect.II p.15:
<In the course of a letter just received from our esteemed friend and correspondent, Charles A. Maurian, formerly of this city, but now, for a number of years past, a resident of Paris, France, he says: "I send you two games played here recently by our young American paladin, Albert Whiting Fox of Washington, D.C.; - one with Dr. Berthold Lasker, the brother of the champion, who has lately been on a visit to Paris, and who has the reputation of being a very fine player, and the other with myself on the 30th instant (the first, by the way, that we ever played together), both being won by our young and talented countryman. In justice to Dr. Lasker, I should mention that another game played against Mr. Fox was scored by him (Dr. Lasker). It should be noted, also, that Dr. Lasker hampered himself seriously by adopting a defense to the Ruy Lopez which is known to be unfavorable; but the way in which the young American player takes the advantage thus gained in the opening and gradually adds to it throughout the game to the finish shows well his qualities of judgment and precision." We give this finely-contested partie below, and think that our readers will decidedly agree with Mr. Maurian's opinion.>
The game score (A W Fox vs B Lasker, 1901) appears with the date, May 19th 1901, and notes, that subsequently appeared in <Checkmate>, September 1901, p.156, as given in Winter's article.
The letter's recipient, the chess editor of the <Times-Democrat>, was James DeBenneville Seguin as mentioned by Uedemann in the <Chicago Tribune> of May 12th 1901, page 20, again quoted by Winter.
