From Bill Fawcett's book:
CHARLOTTE W. GAUSS was born on August 23, 1879 in Boonesville, Missouri to Oscar W. Gauss and Esther Gill. She accompanied her family to Boonesville (1877-87), Jefferson City (1887), and Kansas City (1901-07), Missouri; and finally Greeley, Colorado (1907-69+). Charlotte Gauss studied art in Chicago, San Francisco and New York. She married Henry ---- by 1925, but he soon died. Charlotte lived with her sisters, Louise and Marianne, at the family home in Greeley (1411 11th Avenue, 1907-1966 Directories) and taught art at Greeley High School (1916-27, The Spud, 14th Ave/15-16th St; Gauss 1982, Denver Post 2/7/1932). She then became a free-lance artist and illustrator. Charlotte illustrated many of the children wildlife books written by her sister, Marianne, during the 1920-30s. She sketched wildlife while they camped and hiked around Estes Park (Rocky Mountain National Park) during the summer, then finalized her art work with museum specimens or at the Denver Zoo. In 1967 she moved to 1201 8th Street (1967-69 Directories).
