Biographical data
Name: Walter, Hermann August Eduard Georg  
Born: 16 Mar. 1866
Died: 1 May 1954
 
Notes:
Hilbert (in his book on Napier, pp.91-92) gives 3 games played against Napier in Berlin in 1900. Was this the same 'Walter'? Dates of birth and death from official records sent by Alan McGowan. There was also a Berthold Walter of Wilmersdorf active in the 1920s, and it is possible that some events attributed to Hermann Walter should be attributed to Berthold Walter.
