  GrahamClayton: Beckhardt was a student at the College of the City of New York, who played in a qualification tournament to decide the American team that would play in the 1933 Olympiad in Folkestone. Beckhart won the 1936 Bronx County Championship in New York.

Dake qualified for Folkestone 1933 by beating Beckhardt in the last round of the qualifier, attaining 7 points; it was a French Defense lasting 29 moves .

Beckhardt seems have been a pretty strong player if he competed in a US Olympiad qualification tournament - did he ever compete in any US Open Tournaments in the late 1930's or 1940's?
