Kibitzer's Corner
May-23-04  Swindler: Is Solomon related in any way to Akiba? I know Akiba got married in 1917, so it seems unlikely that Solomon is his son. I also have a vague memory that Akibas siblings passed away at a young age, so I don't think that he's a brother.

Anybody know?

Apr-25-05  aw1988: I have no clue, perhaps just a namesake like Garry Kasparov and Sergey Kasparov.

  Phony Benoni: I think the son theory can be ruled out. Jeremy Gaige, in <Chess Personalia> gives his birthdate at 1868 in Poland, making him fourteen years older than Akiba. He died 11/27/1931 in Los Angeles.
Mar-09-14  Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker, Berlin, February 6, on New York 1913 (the masters who were not yet internationally known):

<Sie heißen Kupchik, Zapoleon, Liebenstein, Stapfer, Kline, Morrison, Whitaker, Tanenwurzel und Rubinstein. Der letztere ist nicht der berühmte russische Meister und wird nach seinen Partien zu schließen kaum den Ehrgeiz spüren, seinem Namensvetter den Rang abzulaufen.>

(They are named Kupchik, Zapoleon, Liebenstein, Stapfer, Kline, Morrison, Whitaker, Tanenwurzel and Rubinstein. The latter is not the famous Russian master and will, deduced from his games, barely feel the ambition to overtake his namesake.)
