Walter Jacobs


I'm planning to write an article on the Jacobs theme.
In this regard, I found some details online about Jacobs himself: https://history.computer.org/pioneers/jacobs-ww.html
I assume this is the same person, since the dates of birth and death given here match those in WinChloe.
Can any of our American friends give any additional information about him?

Norman Macleod's obituary of Jacobs appeared in the May 1982 issue of The Problemist, which you can find on the BCPS website. He is also covered in 'A Sketchbook of American Chess Problematists Volume 2', which can be viewed on Vaclav Kotesovec's website.
