Rice Memorial 1916 :

The original idea was to invite primarily American masters and leading European players who might be able to compete despite the war. Invitations were sent to Alekhine, Capablanca, Marshall, Showalter, Kostic, Edward Lasker, Chajes, Kupchik, and Norman T. Whitaker. No reply was received from Alekhine, which given the conditions of the time surprised nobody. Marshall refused to compete after a dispute over a retaining fee, and neither Edward Lasker nor Whitaker chose to play. However, David Janowski was able to travel over from France to add some international flavor. The rest of the field consisted of chess masters chiefly from New York and a checkers player from Detroit, as listed in the [American Chess Bulletin] of February, 1916:

Jose Raul Capablanca of Havana;  David Janowski of Paris; Borislav Kostic of Budapest; Albert Whiting Fox of Washington; Newell William Banks of Detroit (American champion at checkers); Albert Hodges of Staten Island; Abraham Kupchik and Jacob Carl Rosenthal of the Manhattan Chess Club; Oscar Chajes, Jacob Bernstein and Edward Tennenwurzel, of the Isaac L. Rice Progressive Chess Club; Roy Turnbull Black, Frank Kendall Perkins, Alfred Schroeder of the Brooklyn Chess Club.
