This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Otto H. Rothenburgh (1893-1992)

Born on October 29,  1893 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he was a son of Henry and Margaret Rothenburgh, German immigrants. Henry was working as a "Sugar Boiler" in 1900 in Philadelphia and as a "Foreman, Sugar Refinery" in Yonkers, New York in 1910.

Otto Rothenburgh studied at the Art Student's League and was living in Yonkers, New York, when he completed his WWI draft registration card.  Otto applied for a passport in 1921 stating that he was an artist and traveling to Holland to study and visit relatives, and also traveling to study in the British Isles, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, France, and Gibraltar.  This passport was later canceled. He applied for a new passport in 1925, stating he was traveling to Hungary and the Balkan States.  At the same time, his wife, Livia, also applied for a passport, stating she was a native of Budapest, Hungary and that she and Otto were married in Budapest on September 20, 1922.  She noted that she had lived in Hungary, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.  

He exhibited at the Society of Independent Artists in 1931 and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Annuals in 1935 and 1938.

Otto was living in Middle Valley, New Jersey in 1943 when he filled out his WWII draft registration.  Rothenburgh died on July 4, 1992 in Califon, Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
