  GrahamClayton: Here is an excerpt from an article in the "Brooklyn Eagle", dated 16 September 1888, about Moehle's role as the human operator of the automaton "Ajeeb":

"The gentleman who plays chess in the automaton box, and who is known as Ajeeb is Mr Charles A Moehle, of St Paul, Minnesota, and he stood fourth in last week's Cincinatti tourney. His task in representing the automaton figure at the Eden Musee, is a very difficult one, inasmuch as he is cooped up within a wax figure and its draperies, divested of most of his clothing, without a chance to stretch himself, and for three hours twice a day, with only a partial view of the chess board before him, and that obtained only through a masked peep hole."

Holy Moehle! What a story!

May-19-17  zanzibar: <NY Herald Tribune 1898-04-10 pB4>

<Chess-players will regret to learn that the well-known expert, Charles H. Moehle, died at Cincinati the other day. New-Yorkers may remember Moehle as one of the strongest Metropolitan players. In the fifth American chess congress he received the second prize, the first being taken by the late Captain Mackenzie.>
