Footnotes

1 Schenker's diary for October 13, 1931 (OJ 4/5, p. 3669) has two pertinent entries: "An Karpath (Br. expreß): bitte ihn in Violins Angelegenheit um eine Audienz." [...] — Von Karpath (Br.): bestimmt die Stunde." ("To Karpath (express letter): I ask for an audience with him concerning Violin's matter. [...] — From Karpath (letter): determines the time [of the meeting]."). The meeting is reported the following day (p. 3670): "Bei Karpath: verspricht Hilfe durch Wiener ‒ seine Hofrat-Eitelkeit war durch die Bemerkung Deutsch’, namentlich die des Dr. Thomasberger gereizt." (At Karpath's: he promises help, via Wiener ‒ his Counselor vanity was aroused by Deutsch's observation, in particular that concerning Dr. Thomasberger."). On October 10, Moriz Violin had petitioned for the title of "Professor" for himself, for which his citizenship was thought to be an issue. Schenker had discussed the matter with Otto Erich Deutsch on the 12th. Deutsch had also suggested that Anthony van Hoboken be recommended for a state honor.
