This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted December 2005, is from Louis A. Gottschalk, M.D., brother of the artist.

Max Jules Gottschalk was an industrial designer, fine-art painter, and designer of functional furniture and electronic materials.  All of his creative designs were purchased by commericial and industrial organizations and manufactured, for example, rotary card files and Scott paper towel holders by the Wheeldex Corporation, New York; lunar escape and air cushion vehicles for Bell Aero Systems; open frozen food refrigeration systems and open refrigerator cases for Hussman-Ligonier Company, St. Louis, Missouri; electronic test equipment for Hughes Aircraft, Tuscon, Arizona (1952-1962)

He was the oldest of four sons of Max F. Gottschalk and Kelmie Mutrux Gottschalk of St. Louis, and the nephew of St. Louis artist, Louis E. Mutrux, and Ann Mutrux.  His childhood surrounded him with art, music, and architecture, for his father was a muscian, composer, and artist, and his uncle was an artist, architect, and builder.  His paternal uncle, Victor Hugo Gottschalk, was a noted physicist.

Max Gottschalk started Washington University Art School, St. Louis, at the age of 13, where he studied drawing, painting, and design, and he studied music with his father.  Then pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree at Washington University, he studied with Edmund Wurpel, Charles Quest, Fred Conway, and other St. Louis artists.  Then he did post-graduate studies in  radio-engineering, Greek and Roman archeology, Art History, and the Psychology of Music. From 1939-1842, he worked for the Newfoundland government developing and producing national indigenous products that were manufactured by their factories.

He moved to New York City, where he was associated with the Teague Design firm and developed many of his creative products, and later he moved to Tucson, Arizona where he became Chair of the Applied Design Department of Pima College.

Upon his death, Max Gottschalk was survived by his daughter, Sandra Carpenter Gottschalk of Bellingham, Washington; a son, Jules Gottschalk, of Fresno, California; and a brother, Louis A. Gottschalk, M.D., Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of California, Irvine, CA.
