Biographical data
Name: Litzenberger, William L.  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
The New York Daily Tribune of 4 Aug. 1895 has 'William Litzenberger' twice and 'W. Leitzenberzen' once. Hilbert and Lahde have 'William J. Litzenberger', but the American Chess Magazine of Apr.-May 1898 (p.629) has 'William L. Litzenberger'. This suggests that the 'L. Litzenberger, of Staten Island' who appears in Hilbert's biography of Napier (p.9) is the same person.
