  vonKrolock: <"Richard Kujoth, a veteran Milwaukee player, became his own publisher when he issued <"Chess Is an Art">, a memoir of his finest games and composed problems. Kujoth is best known for a <sic> 10-move win he played in 1950 in which he moved only his pawns. "> (from N Y Post online)

may refer to Kujoth vs Fashingbauer, 1950 where only ♙♙s are moved in the first ten white movements

In the mid 1970s, a friend gave me a set of back numbers of <CR>, one of which was the above named. Had forgotten about Kujoth appearing in that!

  GrahamClayton: According to this page, Kujoth's date of death was December 15, 2011:

Kujoth competed in the 1950 US Junior Championship tournament, which was held in his home town of Milwaukee, but had to withdraw after two rounds due to illness. His sister Marlene finished 18th, and was the first girl to play in a US Junior Championship tournament.
