Kulp, Isaac Clarence, 1938-2007
Extent: 14 linear feet ((20 boxes))
Isaac Clarence Kulp (1938-2007) was an historian, antiquarian, and folk artist of Vernfield, Montgomery Co., PA. In the 1960s he was one of the pioneers of Pennsylvania German folk culture research in the Goschenhoppen region of Montgomery County and surrounding areas. His collection of folklore notes, tape recordings, books, paintings, photographs and other manuscripts has been preserved at the Mennonite Heritage Center. The I. C. Kulp Historical Collection consists of documents, correspondence, etc. from three centuries of PA German life in eastern Pennsylvania. Much of the material was bought by Mr. Kulp at family auctions, some was given to him. Highlights of this collection are papers and scrapbooks from Abraham H. Bergey (1876-1964) of Franconia Twp., Montgomery Co. (including papers from fraktur artist Samuel K. Gottschall), papers from the family of Abraham Harley Cassel (1820-1905) of Vernfield, Montgomery Co., and papers of Lutheran minister Josiah S. Renninger (1838-1919). (View full finding aid.)

Creator:
Kulp, Isaac Clarence, 1938-2007
Extent: 5 linear feet ((8 boxes))
Isaac Clarence Kulp (1938-2007) was an historian, antiquarian, and folk artist of Vernfield, Montgomery Co., Pennsylvania. In the 1960s he was one of the pioneers of Pennsylvania German folk culture research in the Goschenhoppen region of Montgomery County and surrounding areas. His collection of folklore notes, tape recordings, books, paintings, photographs and other manuscripts has been preserved at the Mennonite Heritage Center. The I. C. Kulp Photo Collection: Mr. Kulp amassed an important collection of over 3,200 photographic images (an item-level inventory is available at http://www.mhep.org/files/inventories/HM436photoinventorydetailed.pdf). Many of the photos are local, including groups from the Kulp, Gottshall, Cassel, Foutz, Harley, Custer, Kriebel, and Metzger families. The most notable part of the collection is a unique group of 35 glass negatives from young photographer Jonas H. Nyce in the years 1900-1910. These are original images that give a rare view into life on the Indian Creek in central Montgomery County, Pennsylvania at the turn of the twentieth century. (View full finding aid.)
