May-24-17  zanzibar: He's <Adolf Dušek>, although I've see one example of <Adolfa Dušek>.

Not sure when he was born/died, but he was influential (and not a half-bad player methinks)...

<dr. Adolf Dušek (President of the Prague County School of Justice)>

<dr. Adolf Dušek (předseda praž-ské župy ÚJČŠ)>

Maybe some intrepid biographer can find out a little more...


May-24-17  zanzibar: This stuff is a little too hard for me, but right now this is my best lead for dob: 1881

It's about right. There's another Adolf, possibly his son, born in 1908. The chessplayer had reached his majority by 1905 though - given his participation in 1st Congress tn.

May-24-17  zanzibar: Ah, no sooner do I post the above, then I find:

<Dušek, Adolf (1881-1951)>

  Honza Cervenka: Yes, this is dr. Adolf Dusek (1881 - 1951), a lawyer and politician, active member of interwar Czechoslovak National Democratic Party. He was very active public figure and organiser, and leading member of many cultural and sports associations, including ÚJČŠ (Central Union of Czech Chessplayers). But he was also twice the head of Czech or Czechoslovak Ice Hockey Association.

As a player he also used a pseudonym Vitkovsky, so A Vitkovsky is almost certainly Adolf Dusek.

  Honza Cervenka: Here is a photo of Czechoslovak national ice-hockey team from Winter Olympic games in Antverp 1920, dr. Adolf Dusek is the man on the left.

And here is another picture from 1923 ÚJČŠ Congress, Adolf Dusek is the second sitting guy from right.
