Biographical data
Name: Lipschütz, Salomon  
   Also known as: Samuel Lipschütz
Born: 4 July 1863
Died: 30 Nov. 1905
 
Notes:
There has been uncertainty about the forename of Lipschütz. Gaige gives 'Lipschütz, S[ámuel?]'; Hooper and Whyld give 'Lipschütz, Samuel'; Winter, citing evidence from Gaige for 'Simon', 'Solomon' and 'Samuel', says that the evidence is still inconclusive. Stephen Davies (who has written a biography of Lipschütz) has confirmed that his given name was 'Salomon' but that he was known as 'Samuel'. Winter cites the Dec. 1905 issue of the American Chess Bulletin saying that Lipschütz' health was unsatisfactory, though Gaige gives the date of death as 30 Nov. 1905. Davies has confirmed the date of death given by Gaige.
