  Benzol: <Resignation Trap> If this is Dr Edmund Adam is the date incorrect for the second game or is it a different Edmund Adam?

Nov-13-14  ljfyffe: Edmund played in the first World Correspondence 1950 where he is listed under E.Adam.
Jul-01-15  zanzibar: Got this mention:

<On August 25th, 1946, a working group called “Arbeitsgemeinschaft deutscher Fernschachfreunde (BdF)” was instituted at Frankfurt/Main, with its presidency taken by Dr. E. Adam.>

Jul-16-15  ljfyffe: <Benzol> Is S. MacDonald-Ross, Stephen????
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <ljfyffe> I'm sorry but I don't know. It is possible, but MacDonald-Ross would have been only about thirteen at the time. Perhaps someone else will be able to shed more light on this matter.
Jul-17-15  ljfyffe: It has been pointed out that E. Adam is an American player and the game 1968.
