Documents associated with this person:

Son of Schenker's brother Wilhelm and the latter's first wife (whose name is unknown), hence a nephew of Heinrich, usually referred to in correspondence and the diaries as "Tonschl" (little Tony).

Anton Schenker was married with children, but had left his wife by January 1920 (OJ 3/1, p. 2205); by that time, he was showing signs of inheriting his father's disease: acute arteriosclerosis (ibid). In the period after World War I, Anton was involved in black market trading, and his arrest appeared in the newspapers on March 30, 1920 (OJ 3/1, p. 2224). Schenker suspected that Anton's death was suicide (OJ 3/6, p. 2672 and p. 2673).

No correspondence between Anton and Wilhelm Schenker is known to survive.

  • OJ 5/38, [1] Handwritten letter from Heinrich Schenker and Jeanette Kornfeld to Wilhelm Schenker, dated January 24, 1918

    Heinrich comments on the attack of the mumps, from which Wilhelm's children are suffering. Heinrich encourages Wilhelm and his family to move from Kautzen permanently, and in that connection will investigate the cost of having Julia Schenker's body moved from Waidhofen to Vienna for burial with the cooperation of the Vienna Kultusgemeinde. He envisions purchasing burial plots for Jeanette and himself adjacent to Julia's grave. He thanks Dodi for her invitation to stay with them if Vienna becomes intolerable.
