May-24-15  thomastonk: A possible starting point for more research:

In an American article on the tournament in New York 1893 he was called "Ludwig Schmidt, the violin virtuoso". In scores of some compositions and a concert announcement, his name is given as "Louis Schmidt" or "Louis Schmidt, Jr."
