About Jakob Jacques Schwarz

Obituary from the British Chess Magazine, August 1921:

"Another of the Viennese "old masters" died on June 13th, namely Jacques Schwarz, aged sixty-five. The nephew of a well-known expert, Adolf Schwarz, the deceased, who was born in Moravia, came to Vienna in the late '70's and learnt chess when he was studying for the Law - a profession which he afterwards gave up for banking*.
In play with his uncle and other masters, he made rapid progress, and in 1881 he competed in the international tournament in Berlin, tieing for seventh place in very distinguished company. At Nuremberg in 1883 he was ninth in another very strong field. We rely on <Deutsches Wochenschach> for the accuracy of these details, since the ordinary chess records fail to make any distinction between Herr J. Schwarz and his more celebrated uncle.

  • Note: In the birth certificate of my great-grandfather (Walter Schwarz) he is listed as a "Bankbeamter" (bank clerk).
