Name: Oscar Conrad Müller
Birthdate: ca 1860
Nationality: ENG

His name looks German...

May-26-16  zanzibar: Muller, Müller, or Mueller?

While investigating this, I found a batgirl article written by the player, in 1931, about Simpson's Divan:

I wonder how the name was spelled in the article? Was it like Sarah's Müller?

The German Muller with an umlaut can be rendered as Mueller or Muller in English (or the umlaut can be retained), just as Hubner with an umlaut can be rendered as Hubner or Huebner. So all three spellings for Mueller were probably used at one time or another.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I have a 1945 book of combinations by Luis Argentino Palau, where the only information given regarding the following position is that white is "O. Müller."
