Biographical data
Name: Schindler, Josef (1)  
Born: 19 Mar. 1902
Died:
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth date 19-03-1902, as does the Deutsche Schachzeitung of 1972 (p.170). However, the Deutsche Schachblätter of 1969 (p.238) says that he was 73 years old then, which puts his year of birth at 1895-1896. There appears to be confusion over his first name. The Deutsche Schachblätter of 1926 (p.391) gave his name as 'Gg. Schindler', following an article in the Münchner Neueste Nachrichten of 28 Aug. 1926 which listed 'Georg Schindler' at Pirmasens 1926. However, the 11 Sep. 1926 issue of the same newspaper has 'Josef Schindler' there. (this information from Alan McGowan). This may be why Gaige had 'G. Schindler' at Munich 1924, Kissingen 1928, and Bamberg 1930, and why the 2002 history of Bavarian Chess (Der Bayerische Schachbund, by Diel) has 'Georg Schindler' several times. After some digging into German sources, Alan McGowan suggested to me that Georg and Josef Schindler of Munich were not in fact distinct players and that 'Georg' was simply an error that propagated. Josef Schindler of Munich is, however, distinct from the Dr. Josef Schindler who was playing in the Congresses of the German Chess Association in Czechoslovakia through the 1920s.
