Well, as the archivist described, it isn’t much–but nevertheless, I am truly fascinated and excited!
First, there was the candidate’s register from 1895, not much to see there except date, name, town and occupation. The later register, 1897, when he was admitted to the Union League, included basically the same thing, date, name, and town–but it was signed, and all the information appeared to be handwritten by M.H. Kulp himself. It is the first handwritten document I have found, with the exception of his signature on the marriage license which I discovered back in May.
