                                        Biographical Sketch

        Robert F. Ulle, son of George and June (Howe) Ulle was born in Berks County, PA on
August 11, 1948. He died in a Pittsburgh hospital on May 21, 1986. He was married to Deborah
Bellimor who survived him. Ulle was a member of Perkasie Mennonite Church. His funeral
service was at Blooming Glen Mennonite Church, and he was buried at Perkasie Mennonite
Church. Robert F. Ulle worked on a doctoral dissertation in Afro-American history which was
published posthumously in 1986. He contributed heavily to Mennonite historical studies and was
active in the Franconia Mennonite Conference Peace and Social Concerns Committee as well as the
Central American Study Action Group (CASA).

                                    Administrative Information

       These photocopied documents were deposited into the Archives by Bob Ulle, Philadephia,
Pennsylvania, from 1973-1984. One set of documents were deposited by Richard K. MacMaster,
Bridgewater, Virginia, in 1976. One box was deposited by his widow, Debra Ulle, Blooming Glen,
Pennsylvania, in 1997. A partial listing of the documents is found in the Accession Record.

        A file folder list of the collection was first listed on April 1, 1998 by Dennis Stoesz. It was
then posted on the web. Collection was updated by Monica Zimmerman on August 10, 2001, and it
was reformatted on web by Kathyrn Yoder May 4, 2004. The files were numbered by Nelda
Nussbaum August 18, 2005. A more detailed item description of the documents, and posting the
invntory on the web, was made possible through the funding of the Showalter Foundation. The
description was based on Ulle's subject index, and listed by Nelda Nussbaum. The series listing,
biographical sketch, and administrative information was completed by Dennis Stoesz through the
assistance of Joel Alderfer, Mennonite Heritage Center, Harleysville, Pennsylvania. It was
completed September 7, 2006.

        One should note that there is also a Robert F. Ulle Archival Collection located at the
Mennonite Heritage Center, Harleysville, Pennsylvania. Following Ulle's death in 1986, most of
his historical research and records were donated to the Mennonite Historians of Eastern
Pennsylvania. During the year of 1991 and January 1992, that collection was organized and
inventoried by Timothy Rice of Bedminster Township, Bucks County, PA. Rice's description of
that collection provides a good introduction to the materials Ulle had deposited at the archives in
Goshen earlier:

       The collection has three major divisions: 1) Colonial and Revolutionary Era History with
       primary emphasis on Mennonite and Germantown history. 2) Late 18th century to
       early/mid 20th century history with emphasis on Mennonites, Pennsylvania Germans, and
Hist. Mss. 1-450 Robert F. Ulle, 1948-1986, Collection (Continued)                             4

      Afro-Americans. 3) Records pertaining to the Franconia Mennonite Conference Peace and
      Social Concerns Committee.

      In addition, Robert Ulle researched Old Order Mennonite history (Stauffer Mennonites).
      These records were given to Amos B. Hoover for the Muddy Creek Farm Library of Denver,
      PA. Robert Ulle researched the Mennonite Migrations to Ontario for the Lancaster
      Mennonite Historical Society until his final illness interrupted his work.

      The Colonial and Revolutionary History section contains research documenting how
      Mennonites and in some cases how Quakers dealt with events like the Naturalization Oaths
      of the early 1700's, the Paxton Gang and the Election Riots, the American Revolution and
      the Test Act. Many of the files pertain to Germantown history, but a significant amount of
      research focuses on Lancaster, Bucks, and Northampton Counties in Pennsylvania and states
      other than Pennsylvania. Much of his research in this section and the following one was
      used in the books Conscience in Crisis, Mennonite History In America series, and John
      Ruth's Maintaining the Right Fellowship. Included in this section is a guide to Colonial /
      Revolutionary War Documents by Robert F. Ulle.

      The portion of this collection which includes late eighteenth to early or mid-twentieth
      century contains a diversity of research. It includes a number of files on Mennonite history
      dealing with war and peace, the Jacob Funk dispute, the Martyr's Mirror, the 1803 Zions
      Harfe, and Mennonite prosperity in 1876. A second subsection contains research on general
      Pennsylvania German history including topics on folklore and transmission of food love in a
      Pennsylvania German family. The third subsection on Afro-American and religion.
      "Kinship and Ethnohistory in Philadelphia's Black Seventh Ward, 1838-1912" is also
      included. A published copy of his doctoral dissertation entitled A History of St. Thomas
      African Episcopal Church, 1794-1865 can be found in the MHEP [Mennonite Historians of
      Eastern Pennsylvania] library.
