Biographical data
Name: Stolzenberg, Leon  
   Also known as: Leon Stolcenberg
Born: 18 Oct. 1895
Died: 25 Oct. 1974
 
Notes:
Gaige has 'L.D. Stolzenberg' in one place in Chess Tournament Crosstables but 'L. Stolzenberg' in others. Di Felice has 'Stolzenberg, Leon D.' everywhere. However, Gaige in Chess Personalia gives 'Stolzenberg, Leon', with no middle initial, which I take to be correct.
