Gutleben, Dan | Archives & Special Collections, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries

Name: Gutleben, Dan


Historical Note: Born in Calmer, Alsace, Daniel Gutleben immigrated with his family to Fontanelle, Nebraska, when he was a young boy.  His father was a Lutheran preacher, who moved the family to various rural communities in Nebraska and Kansas while Gutleben was growing up.  In 1895, Gutleben began attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and earned his BA in engineering in 1900.  His career consisted primarily of work in the sugar industry, and he retired in 1945 after 25 years as chief engineer of the Pennsylvania Sugar Company in Philadelphia, PA.  Gutleben also spent much of his time chronicling the history, agricultural and industrial practices, and important persons in the sugar industry.  Beginning in about 1930, he wrote “The Sugar Tramp,” a series of informal essays related to sugar.
