Portrait sent to Jim and Betsy Flack in 1992 with daughter Greta Neelsen's description: My father was ... rigid in his lifestyle, locked into an exotic past, unable to come to terms with life in the New World. He was a gifted engineer from a well connected Viennese family: his brother was the personal physician to Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand, heir apparent to the Austrian throne. A footloose bachelor until he was 38, father was a well traveled witty cosmopolite. He had worked a few years in the Sudan, then in Yokohama, and was transferred to the United States in 1913.
