Biography Minnie Gattinger
Minnie Gattinger was the daughter of Dr. Augustin Gattinger (1825 - 1903), a botanist and medical doctor who, in 1901, published the first extensive catalog of the botany of Tennessee entitled Flora of Tennessee and Philosophy of Botany. Augustin, a German, met George Dury, a young aspiring artist, at the University of Munich. Augustin married Dury's sister, Josephine in 1849, and subsequently the Gattingers moved to the United States along with Dury and his new wife.
The Dury's and Gattinger's lived at Cave Spring in East Tennessee in the early 1850's. After spending some 15 years practicing medicine in Chattanooga and East Tennessee, Gattinger's pro-Union sympathies forced him to flee to Nashville in 1864.
