In remembrance of Lasker
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the death of Emanuel Lasker (†11-01-1941) we give a short note of remembrance.
Below we give an obituary by Hermann Helms from the Brooklyn Eagle.
The reprinted Lasker problem is an original from Checkmate, July 1903 (No 285)
(see problem No 6, p.399 of the German Lasker monograph ).
For photos of Lasker's grave see our column Chess Graves.
Words spoken by the Rev. Dr. D. de Sola Pool at the funeral on Monday, 13 January 1941
