During my extensive research on Jackson Showalter, I recently came across an article from 1916 that details an inexplicable eleven move checkmate suffered by then American chess champion Frank Marshall at a Brooklyn, New York simul. 

The article from the April 23rd, 1916 edition of the Washington Post is shown on my website at www.rookhouse.com/blog and the moves of the game are given below:
