Moses Ullman

Moses Montefiore Ullman (born August 6, 1875 in Natchez, Mississippi; died September 24, 1930 in Lake City, Florida) was an attorney.

Moses was the fourth son born to hardware dealer Samuel Ullman and his wife, Emma. He moved with the family to Birmingham in 1884. He graduated from Birmingham High School and read law under Frank White. He married the former Rosa Patterson of Baltimore, Maryland on December 28, 1902.

Ullman, who had a law office in the Woodward Building, served as secretary of the Phoenix Club in 1907. He and Rosa had been boarding with their daughter Emma at 2101 6th Avenue North, but moved into a house at 1921 7th Avenue South before summer. In July their 4-month-old son, Moses Jr, died at home. A second daughter, Rose, was born in 1910.

By 1915 Ullman had moved his offices to the Brown Marx Building. During the term of Birmingham City Commission president George Ward, Ullman was appointed City Attorney, alongside Romaine Boyd. He moved his family into a new home at 1201 10th Place South in Waverly Place.

During World War I Ullman resigned his position with the city and was commissioned as a Major in the Judge Advocate General's Department in France. Afterward he was one of the organizers of Birmingham Post No. 1 of the American Legion.

In 1920 he partnered with Ben Leader in the firm of Leader & Ullman.

Ullman suffered from an illness contracted while serving overseas. He spent his last months at the Lake City Veterans Administration Hospital in Lake City, Florida, where he died in September 1930. He was survived by his wife and two daughters, Marie and Rose. Ullman was buried at Cemetery Emanu-El.
