  MissScarlett: Younger brother of <Walter Arensberg>:

Charles played on the Harvard chess team alongside Elmer E Southard. Walter, apparently, also played: <Southard met Walter Arensberg as an undergraduate at Harvard where they were both members of the Harvard Chess Team, and they remained close friends until Southard's death.>

  MissScarlett: Chicago Tribune, December 22nd 1900, p.12:

<C.F.C. Arensberg, class poet at Harvard this year, is a brother of W. C. Arensberg, who was the class poet last year. The brothers are expert chess players, and both have played on the Harvard team. The plodding, patient genius of a chess player and the supposed impatient inspiration of a poet are hard to reconcile in the same person, and still harder in two persons of the same family.>

<W. C.> was good enough to be selected by Harvard as a 'possible' for the annual <C.H.Y.P> intercollegiate event in 1896 and 1897, failing to make the cut (to two) on both occasions. Charles played in 1898.
