No first name. Active from 20.3.1861. Advertisements in which he claimed to have had a career in the French capital. "Monsieur Hauser can prove by 4 years of success in Paris, and by portraits of all the senior employees of the prefecture of the Seine, that [...] his portraits are superior to any made up to now [...]. He is visible every day from 9 o'clock to 4 o'clock, in a glass-fronted ground-floor apartment" (Ami de l'Ordre, 24.3.1861). Hauser subsequently settled in Saint-Quentin [Aisne, F], where he was recorded as a studio photographer at Rue de l'Isle, 20 from 1864 to 1877.
