Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-08  Karpova: Schlemm died in 1901.
Jul-15-12  Karpova: Schlemm learned how to play chess at the age of 26. He was one of the co-founders of the Vienna Chess Society and its first secretary (1857 to 1867) and later vice-president of the Vienna Chess Club.

'(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung', 1901, page 180

Dec-22-12  thomastonk: <"its first secretary(1857 to 1867)"> The quote is correct, but this statement is not true, I believe. In "Schachzeitung" 1858, p 286, the secretary J.Papsch signed a letter. The year 1867 is however correct, see "Neue Berliner Schachzeitung", 1868, p 91.

So, when begun Schlemm as secretary of the Vienna Chess Society?

Feb-20-14  thomastonk: Another chapter in the book on early death notices?

"The Chess-Moltke of Vienna, Herr Schlemm, died lately at the age of 82. He was for ten years a former secretary of the old Vianna Club, and its sole honorary member. He was a frequent prize-winner in club tourneys, and possessed a remarkable faculty as an analyst and an adviser in conducting correspondence games, &c., so that as a good all-round man he will be much missed."

BCM, volume 15, 1895(!), p. 179.
