Event data
Name: 24th Franklin Chess Club Championship
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: Dec. 1908
End date: May 1909
 
Notes:
This appears to have been a 13-player single-round all-play-all tournament. Hilbert (in his book on Shipley) gives the final scores of only 4 players. Curiously, on p.328 he says Young was third with 8 points, but on p.335, he cites Shipley to say that Neill ('B. Milnes') was third with 8.5 points. I suppose that the latter is correct and that Young indeed got 8 points. A play-off match for first place was not contested until Nov. 1909 to Mar. 1910, so is recorded separately here. Other players included S.W. Bampton and W.A. Ruth.
