Notes:
Located in Catonsville, Maryland, Tanglewood was the home of analytical chemist and industrialist Dr. Gustav A. Liebig, his wife Sarah Elizabeth Holland Liebig, and their family. Built in 1886 in the Queen Anne Victorian style, the house was designed by Baltimore architect Jackson C. Gott, while the estate included some 11 acres. The house, grounds, and Liebig family and friends are documented in this series, many of whose images were taken by Dr. Gustav A. Liebig, Jr. Tanglewood continued to be the Liebig family's home until it was sold in 1894 (Dr. Liebig, Sr., died in 1893). After passing through several owners the house was razed, but the name "Tanglewood" was passed on to a housing subdivision built on the site in the 1940s. The Liebig and White families were neighbors in Catonsville. It is possible that Sarah Liebig gave these images and others taken by her son to G. Howard White following the death of Dr. Liebig, Jr., in 1897.
