  whiteshark: "Friedrich Ludwig Amelung
(born March 11, 1842; died March 9, 1909) was a Latvian chess player and author who edited the chess column of the Riga newspaper D√ľna-Zeitung. He studied philosophy and chemistry at the University of Dorpat from 1862 to 1879, and later became a private teacher and director of a mirror factory."


to be continued...

<Mibelz> There is a discrepancy regarding the dates of birth and death and the nationality. Can you give your source, please?

Aug-04-08  myschkin: Final paper:

or see "Games of no Chance" (e.g. google books)

<mibelz> sauce, pardon source:

May-19-14  Karpova: The 'Wiener Schachzeitung' (June 1909, p. 180) also gives * <11 March 1842> and + <9 March 1909>. The discrepancy is probably due to Julian (March 11, March 9) and Gregorian (March 24, March 22) calender.
