died on 18th February 1932 at Elberfeld

Heinrich Emil Kurt

, born on 8th August 1904. Emil Müller was a builder and architect.
 
After having lived in America for about seven years Emil Müller had to absolve his compulsory military service. Most of the time of three years he served as a so-called &dbquo;Pioneer of the Guard“ at the gates of the Royal Palace in Berlin, a job, which he didn't like at all. He felt quite old then, a mature man among youngster colleagues. But what made him particularly angry, after having grown up in a social-democratic family and being  influenced by his

7 years time in the USA

, accustomed to a democratic way of life now, was his duty to stand still and salute in front of the nannies carrying the tiny baby princes down the steps of the palace.

Emil Müller was dedicated to playing chess. His favourite and regular chess partner was his best friend Wolf (from a Jewish family; 3 of his 4 four daughters were killed by the Nazis; see the letters of the surviving daughter

Grete Wolf

, married

Ullman

). When the legendary

World Champion

Emanuel Lasker

came to Elberfeld for a simultaneous match, Emil Müller was the only player among the participants to reach a remis.
