  wwall: In My Chess Career, Capablanca spells his name Rob. Raubitscheck, with games Capablanca played against him on September 24, 1906 and September 25, 1906. Was this a Columbia University vs some club or other school match?

  TheFocus: Robert was a relative of Rudolf, either brothers or father and son. Both games from 1906 were played against Robert. Once again, <CG> mixes up the games of different people.

Capablanca never played either Raubitschek in a team match or tournament. All their games were off-hand or blitz games.

  GrahamClayton: A snippet from the New York Times, dated 10 December 1908:

"Simultaneous Chess at Carnegie Hall

At the Manhattan Chess Club in Carnegie Hall tonight Mr Robert Raubitschek will give an exhibition of simultaneous chess, contending against twenty or more antagonists. Chess players are invited to attend and participate".

  Tabanus: New York State and Fed. Naturalization Rwecords 1896 gives his exact birth date: 13 August 1873 in Vienna, Austria. Find a Grave has him d. 1948, Beth El Cemetary, Ridgewood, Queens, N. Y. Same burial place as father Ferdinand and brother Robert. Exact dod: probably in Jewish records.

Nice research, <Tabanus>. Nice to see the waters made clear.
