Lasker's opponent was in fact Harold M. Phillips (note Varnusz's spelling error), who the reader might like to know served as United States Chess Federation president some forty-five years later, in the early 1950s.
And in any event, Lasker was not Lasker, or at least not the Lasker of interest to Varnusz, for the American Chess Bulletin makes very clear that Phillips was in fact beaten by Berthold Lasker, Emanuel Lasker's older brother, and not the reigning world champion, who was not competing in the cable match between the Manhattan Chess Club and the Berlin Chess Society.

L.K. My father taught me at age 7, and I had a lesson on how to do the king and rook checkmate at age 8 from Harold Phillips, the first USCF president and a New York champion in the year 1895 (!!).
His daughter and my mother were best friends from college.
