Biography

Gustav Adolf Zwanziger (1837-1893)

Gustav Adolf Zwanziger (29 July 1837 in Schloss Neuhof near Neustadtl – 10 June 1893 in Klagenfurt) was an Austrian journalist, botanist and paleobotanist.

From 1851 to 1854, he served as a horticultural apprentice at the Harrachschen Garten in Aschach, followed by work as an assistant-gardener at the Schönbrunn Garden in Vienna. In 1857 he moved to Salzburg, where for several years he served as a clerk at police headquarters. From 1863 to 1868 he worked as an amanuensis at the Studienbibliothek in Klagenfurt. Afterwards, he was associated with the Kärntner Landesmuseum (Carinthian national history museum) in Klagenfurt.

From 1873 to 1886, he was editor of the Kärntner Gartenzeitung, and for several years was an assistant editor of the Klagenfurter Zeitung (1872-1882). In 1882 he donated his herbarium to the Kärntner Landesmuseum.
