Bernhard Kagan, Polish born German amateur who lived in Berlin and published Kagan's Neueste Schachnachrichten in the years 1917-32. This chess magazine first appeared as a quarterly and then monthly in the years 1921-32. It was published in Berlin and used as a vehicle for giving many master games and articles by such writers as Grunfeld, Tartakower, Tarrasch, Nimzowitsch, Reti and Spielman. Many of the great tournaments of the period appeared in supplements to the magazine. It died when Kagan himself died in 1932. (Golombek: 157)
