Chess Sets Used at Cambridge Springs 1904

As noted on this site's home page, the American Chess Bulletin, Vol.I, No. 1, published in June 1904, mentions that "The eight sets of boards, pieces and clocks used by the competitors in the tournament, each accompanied by a certificate bearing the signatures of the sixteen players, were purchased by the following gentlemen:"

As best as I can tell, the whereabouts of these chess sets is unknown. However, I have begun research on these gentlemen and the following is some initial information that I have found:

John Lindsay McCutcheon

Peter G. Toepfer

Richard H. Johnson

Edward F. Johnson

John L. Emerson

Jno. B. Smithman

At this time I have not located any information about the other chess set purchasers.

If you have any information about these individuals or the chess sets from the Cambridge Springs 1904 tournament, please e-mail me at etz1450@yahoo.com.
