Biographical data
Name: Walter, Hermann  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Could this be H. Walter von Walthoffen? Hilbert (in his book on Napier, pp.91-92) gives 3 games played against Napier in Berlin in 1900. Was this the same 'Walter'? Gaige has 'H. Walther' at Hamburg 1921 in Chess Tournament Crosstables. Di Felice identifies this as 'Walter, Hermann'. I follow Di Felice, but could it have been a different person? There was also a 'J. Walther' at Gyor 1924.
