For Dr. Hartley, there was no other path to follow then to the arts. He grew up surrounded by them, with his mother Catherine an art teacher and gallery owner, and his father Harold, a Thoreau scholar, poet and wood sculptor. When he was in the eighth grade, Dr. Hartley got his first job in the arts working in a darkroom. He held this job until he graduated college and made photography his full-time vocation. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English history at the University of Michigan in 1964, a Master of Arts in English history at Wayne State University in 1966 and later a PhD in English literature from Wayne State University in 1971. Early in his career, he taught English as Wayne State University before joining the faculty as an assistant professor at William Paterson University. He continued as an administrator of educational resources and chapter liaison for the Young Presidents Organization before directing his talents to be the director of planned giving at Carroll University. Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, Dr. Hartley utilized his skills and experience at the Boy Scouts of America, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
