  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".

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

So does <Lasker's Chess Magazine>, June 1906, pg. 53.

  Tabanus: There was also a Rudolph Raubitschek b. 6 April 1873 in Machinaw City. He had a cigar business in Pittsburgh, Penn. in 1900 and married in Allegheny 1903 to Anna Hauck. Tobacco salesman in Allegheny 1920. Not our man.

Our Rudolph I can find in New York 1896 (petition for naturalization), 1905 (NY census Manhattan), and 1918 (WW1 reg. card, Lexington Ave. Manhattan).

  Tabanus: Ferdinand & co. in 1910 census, Manhattan Ward 12, under the search name Ra<n>ditcheck:

Ferdinand Rauditschek, 64, 1458 Lexington Ave., immigrated 1881, widowed, Manager Stock Brokers firm

Rudolph Rauditcheck, 37, Commercial traveler Netting
Richard Rauditcheck, 35, Manufacturer Neck wear Emp
Robert Rauditcheck, 33, Representing forein silk house
Johanna Nadien, 41, Cook Private family
Marie Bender, 26, Servant Private family

They are in the 1900 census also, with name rendered as "Roderick" and "Rosenbeck". The very blurred copy has (in Manhattan, 100 Park Ave.) Ferdinand, 53, broker, wife Rose, 47, three sons Rudolph 26, Richard 25 and Robert 23, all three "Trav. salesman"
