Scope and Content Note

At the time of his death Mueller's collections were divided between the Sauk City Public Library, the State Historical Society, and members of his family. Through the generosity of Dr. Donald Kindschi all of the material presented to the Historical Society (as well as the material designated for the Mueller, Accola, and Kindschi families) was preserved on microfilm. After the filming, a hard copy of a small portion of the papers (chiefly the Badger Ordnance scrapbooks and some photographs) was retained by the Historical Society. These original photographs or copy prints and negatives from the collection are available in the Visual and Sound Archives.

Copies of all of Mueller's local history writings are available in the Historical Society Library. Original public records of the Town of Sumpter and Sumpter schools received from Erhart Mueller have not been filmed; instead they were removed from the collection and separately catalogued as part of the Historical Society's local government record holdings.

The Erhart Mueller Papers contain only a small amount of information about Mueller's own life and activities, but they are a veritable treasure trove of historical, religious, and sociological data about life in one particular rural community over a hundred-year period, as well as a source of extensive genealogical information about the families that resided in the area.

The papers are arranged basically as they were by Mueller himself into eight series: FAMILIES, GOSSIP, CEMETERIES, CHURCHES, ORGANIZATIONS, PLACES, SCHOOLS, and VISUAL MATERIALS.

Erhart Mueller was a frugal bachelor who recycled his junk mail into scrapbook pages, sometimes even taping scraps of paper together to make larger pages on which to mount his historical clippings and notes, sometimes by cutting up cereal boxes to make file dividers. Researchers should be prepared, as a result, to find that some of this irrelevant information is visible on the microfilm surrounding the research notes and clippings and that many portions of the microfilm are consequently difficult to read. Many of the Xerox copies and negative microfilm reader-printer copies that he pasted into his scrapbooks were not of a high quality, and they are also difficult to read on the film. Researchers should also be aware that many of the photograph images on the microfilm were actually Xerox copies of photographs and not original prints.

While the general framework Mueller used to organize his research is valid and its categories are useful for access, the data he gathered about a particular family or topic often appears randomly ordered on a particular page or from one page to the next.

The FAMILIES series is arranged alphabetically by surname. It contains information about many area families, and it seems likely that this series is directly tied to Mueller's Sumpter books. Several families are documented extensively. These include three families to which he was related, the Accolas, the Kindschis, and the Muellers, as well as the Haskins, the Ochsners, the Ragatzes, the Sprechers, and the Waterburys to whom he was apparently not related. (Surprisingly, Mueller wrote very little about his own relatives and only the J.P. Kindschis and the Accolas of Schweitzer Tahl were so featured. They appear in Only in Sumpter.)

While data about the less extensively represented families is randomly ordered within a particular file, the records on the three families of Mueller relatives and the Haskins Family have been elaborately subdivided. Here files about individual family members have been arranged alphabetically by surname, with different surnames within the family group placed at the end of each family's file. In documenting particular relatives Mueller sometimes recorded data about that person only (with information about the descendants being filed elsewhere); in other cases an individual's file may also contain data about several generations of his or her descendants.

The family files variously consist of newspaper clippings; drafts of stories used in Mueller's publications; mimeographed family histories and genealogical notes; original and Xeroxed photographs; obituaries; engagement and wedding announcements; funeral cards; invitations; family trees, charts, and registers; snippets of conversations and family stories; and occasional correspondence exchanged with Mueller. Interfiled in some of the files are original or transcribed diaries, correspondence, and other historical documents collected by Mueller in the course of his research. Unfortunately the custodian of the original material is seldom noted. Notable among the original documentation in the Mueller collection is the diary of John Darms, 1882-1886, which documents the social life of a young single man from Honey Creek and his trip to California; the diary of Harley Theodore Haskin, 1864-1866, which documents the activities of a rural school teacher and student at the Delton Academy; and the diaries of Christian Israel Kindschi, 1887-1888, 1890, 1909, a Prairie du Sac banker. Also present are transcribed, nineteenth century journals of farmer Fuchs (no first name given), H. Ernest Haskin, and Ara Myra Pobjoy, a young unmarried woman who lived in Sauk City at the turn of the century. Also included throughout the family files are materials about relatives who did not reside in the Sauk County area. For example, the family files include many articles of Josephine Huddleston, a writer on fashion and beauty who resided in Decatur, Illinois; the publications of Leslie Loren Haskin on birds and nature; and the missionary work of Frank and Marie Page Drown. There is extensive documentation on the Ochsner Family. Due to the quantity of the information gathered, Mueller's research on the Ochsner Family eventually became a separate publication, The Ochsner Story.

The few documents about Erhart Mueller himself are filed in the Mueller Family material. Included are correspondence, some speeches, a high school memory book, a notebook in which he recorded his youthful experiences as a practice farmer, and a photograph album chiefly dating from the later part of his life.

The GOSSIP series consists of original or microfilm reader-printer copies of newspaper clippings on families throughout the Sauk Prairie area, anecdotes, notes, etc. This series differs from the Families series in that this information does not appear to have been used in Mueller's publications. This is not a precise distinction, however, as some families are documented in both the FAMILIES and the GOSSIP series. Mueller collected information from local newspapers and other sources and filed it in the Gossip series so long as the name was familiar to him. As a result, some of the documented families may not be residents of the area or even relatives of residents.

The Gossip series is arranged by family name. Many names are documented, although no name is extensively represented. As a result no individual names appear in the Contents List below. Instead, researchers should consult the complete list of documented names both on the microfilm and filed in Box 1.

The CEMETERIES series consists of indexes of burials at local cemeteries along with photographs and maps. The indexes list names, locations, birth and death dates, and some inscriptions.

The CHURCHES series variously consists of newspaper clippings, church bulletins, and programs. Most extensive is the information on the Free Congregation of Sauk City. Also here is a minute book, 1918-1926, of the Young People's Alliance of the Salem Evangelical Church and a manuscript by Mueller entitled “The Apostles of Sauk County.”

The ORGANIZATIONS series consists of newspaper clippings, program bulletins, notes, and minutes of the various organizations in the area collected by Mueller. In addition, he acquired some records of Sauk County organizations; records of this type include minutes of the Sauk City Gun Club, clippings concerning the Sauk City Women's Club (news stories about the Sauk City Home Economics Club are included here as well), and minutes of the Sauk Prairie Farmers Club.

The PLACES series documents various places/sites in the Sauk Prairie area. The majority of the information here concerns the Badger Ordnance Works about which Mueller became interested during World War II. The most valuable information dating from this early period in the plant's history are the detailed financial appraisals that were done so that the federal government could acquire the property. Also included are scrapbooks containing newspaper clippings and photographs that document the plant's controversial history from 1941 to the time of Mueller's death. Similar material documents Badger Village, the public housing constructed for workers at the ordnance plant, as well as its subsequent history as housing for students at the University of Wisconsin and eventually as a subsidized retirement community. Mueller's documentation of Bluffview Courts, where he himself resided for the last years of his life, includes a long run of the community newsletters (these are available on microfilm in the Historical Society Library) and information about people who resided there. Badger Village and Bluffview Courts, 1943-1982, another of Mueller's publications, is available in the State Historical Society Library.

Prairie du Sac and the Town of Sumpter are heavily documented in the Places series. Most of the documentation about Prairie du Sac was apparently collected by amateur historian Walter Doll for his book Historical Sketches of Prairie du Sac, which is available in the pamphlet collection at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. The Sumpter memorabilia appear to be miscellaneous material collected by Mueller in the course of his duties as town clerk. Also useful is the information on the Witwen camp meetings and the scrapbooks concerning Durward's Glen and the International Crane Foundation.

The SCHOOLS series consists of newspaper clippings, programs, and notes about various schools in the areas, most of which were discussed in his Sumpter books. The Stone's Pocket School is most extensively represented.

The VISUAL MATERIALS series includes negatives and photographs of the Mueller and Accola families and friends, the town of Sumpter (divided by Mueller's two books on Sumpter), the Badger War Homes project, and the Badger Ordnance Works.
