Otto Bettmann (October 15, 1903- May 3, 1998)
"The Picture Man"
Born in Leipzig, Germany, Bettmann fled to New York from Nazi-controlled Germany in 1935. He brought two trunks of photographs and would continue adding to his archives for the next 50 years, eventually being credited with inventing the image resource business.
Otto Bettmann was best known for his book "The Good Old Days: They Were Terrible," which contradicted the Gilded Age by potraying the era between the Civil War and World War I as one of poor economic and living conditions.
In later years, Bettmann served as a curator of rare books at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida until his death in 1998.
