Notes:
Gottlieb A. Hampfler was the staff photographer for Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, from 1955 until his retirement in 1975. His career in horticulture began with positions at Henry F. Michell Company and Andorra Nursery, both in Pennsylvania. After an exchange of correspondence between Hampfler and Longwood founder Pierre Samuel du Pont, Hampfler was hired in 1934 to serve on the horticulture staff there. In this position, he was able to indulge his passion for photography. Hampfler's first freelance work was done in 1938; from 1946-1948, he served on the faculty of Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. As the president of a number of camera clubs and a member of several professional societies, Hampfer lectured extensively and received numerous awards, including the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Certificate of Merit in 1993.
