[what is this?]

Edward Hymes was a New York attorney whose practice left him little time for competitive play. His one major tournament saw him finish =3rd-4th with Jackson Whipps Showalter at 2nd City Chess Club Tournament (1894), held at New York City in 1894, behind Wilhelm Steinitz and Adolf Albin but ahead of Harry Nelson Pillsbury.

He played in all eight Anglo-American Cable Matches from 1896-1903, scoring +1 -1 =6. Father of Wikipedia article: Edward Hymes.
