Ursula A. Culver
Ursula A. Culver of Cobb Island, MD, died peacefully on February 16, 2022. Born in Dresden, Germany in 1929, she immigrated from Munich, Germany to Ponca City, Oklahoma to marry Robert Culver. The couple moved frequently due to Mr. Culver’s profession in radio and TV. After moving from Ponca City to Pueblo, Colorado; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Richmond, VA, the couple settled in Washington, DC. Mrs. Culver worked at a DC law firm with political connections and an opportunity presented itself for her to join Vice President Hubert Humphrey’s staff. She was the scheduling secretary for all out-of-town appearances. She attended the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago witnessing the unrest in the city and the confrontations between Hubert H. Humphrey and Senator McCarthy supporters. After Humphrey’s loss to Mr. Nixon in 1968, he decided to run for Senate, and Mrs. Culver went to Minnesota to work in logistics and scheduling. Humphrey won the election and returned to Washington. Mrs. Culver worked as a senior staff member until his death in 1978. Thereafter she was the Comptroller for the democratic National Committee and retired in 2019 to be drawn back into politics by Senator Paul Sarbanes as Field Representative for Southern Maryland. In 2003 Mrs. Culver retired and enjoyed the rest of her days on Cobb Island, MD.
Mrs. Culver is survived by her niece Traudl Fuchs (Helmut) and numerous grandnieces and great grand nieces and nephews.
