Additionally he was Berlin Champion in 1909, too.

  zanzibar: <Efforts made to secure the individual portraits of the six German players in the recent cable match failed of realization, but that of Dr. Moritz Lewitt, president of the Berliner Schachgcsellschajt is at hand. In him the Berlin club possesses not only an efficient official, but a player of high rank as well. It is rare indeed for a president of a club of such prominence to be found in the ranks when an important event is being contested. Dr. Lewitt had large experience in the tournaments of the German Chess Association and, although unsuccessful in gaining first or second prizes, he has invariably given a good account of himself, notably at Dresden, 1892. Kiel, 1893, Leipzig, 1894, and Coburg, 1904.>

  zanzibar: Why would WSZ refer to him as Max and not Moritz?
