  MissScarlett: <Lowrie> may be the spelling given by the <Boston Herald> of February 5th, as used by <Whyld (1998)>, but other sources agree it's <Lourie>. And this simul, pace Whyld, was on the 4th, not the 2nd.

  Jean Defuse: ...

Lasker scored +21 =3 1. His only loss was experienced at the hands of one W.R. Lowrie (Lourie or Lurie?), a twenty-year-old Russian-born student who came to America in 1892, graduated from the English High School in 1901 (subsequently taking a postgraduate course there) and was a member of the Boston Chess Club's team for only eighteen months.

  MissScarlett: He was a student at M.I.T. In this <Register of former students with an account of the alumni associations, May 1915> there's:

<Lourie, W(illiam) I(saac), '06, II, '06. Sherwood Building, Duluth, Minn.>

<II> signifies he studied mechanical engineering, graduating in 1906. Close enough, but could be a brother.
