Hartmann, Carl Heinrich (1833–1887)
Born in Dahlen, Saxony, Germany in 1833; emigrated to Australia in 1850; died Brisbane, Queensland, on 14 December 1887 (buried in Toowong Cemetery).
Hartmann married Georgina Elizabeth Anna Pringle on 3 January 1863 at St Paul's Church in Forbes, New South Wales, and they later settled in Toowoomba, Queensland. Hartmann was a noted horticulturalist and he established Range Nursery in Toowoomba in around 1865. Walter Hill, Queensland's Government Botanist, planned and designed the city's Queen's Park beginning in the 1870s and Hartmann made major contributions to this project.
Hartmann also travelled within Queensland collecting plants for Ferdinand Mueller, sending specimens to him at MEL. Hartmann was also a founding member of the Royal Society of Queensland in 1883 and sent zoological specimens to the Queensland Museum. He made two trips to New Guinea in 1885 and 1887 and collected plants there. He died of a fever soon after his return from the second trip.
