FINN, JULIUS:

Russian - American chess-player; born April 28, 1871, at Vladislavovo, government of Suwalki, Russian Poland; emigrated to the United States in 1887. At a tournament played in the city of New York November, 1895, he won twenty-three games, losing two and drawing one. In 1901 he won the championship of New York state.

Finn is perhaps the most successful Jewish blind-fold player; he engages in twelve simultaneous games with facility.
