[what is this?]
Einar Michelsen was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1885. In 1903, Mr. Michelsen helped found the Danish chess magazine Skakbladet. He emigrated to the United States in 1905, living in Chicago except for a few years in New York during World War I. In 1907, he won the championship of the Western Chess Association in Excelsior, Minn. In 1908 he won the Kansas City chess championship and in 1909 that of the Chicago Chess and Checker Club. He placed fourth in the 1945 US Open at the age of 60.

You are correct. Michelsen was a member of the Isaac L Rice Progressive Chess club at the time of the 1915 game v Chajes.
In 1917 Michelsen finished second to A Kupchik in the rapid transit tournament at the Issac L Rice club, ahead of FJ Marshall and David Janowski.
|Apr-18-12|| ||Tabanus: I believe J Michelsen is him also, with two missing Marshall games from NY 1915. If no protest I'll report it tomorrow.|
|Apr-18-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> It was <E Michelsen> at New York 1915, as confirmed by a crosstable in the American Chess Bulletin, May/June, 1915, p. 92.|
It looks like ACB has all the games from the tournament. Smells like a new collection to me, especially since we don't even have all of Capablanca's games from the tournament.
