About Beulah Lehman Hostetler

THE MENNONITE QUARTERLY REVIEW regrets to announce the death of Beulah Stauffer Hostetler on April 30, 2005. Beulah Stauffer was born on July 8, 1926, in Tofield, Alberta, the daughter of Ezra Stauffer and Irene Lehman Stauffer. She came to the United States to attend Hesston (Kan.) College and, in 1947, received a B.A. from Goshen College. From 1949-1950 she attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Beulah married John A. Hostetler (1918-2001) on February 14, 1953, in Scottdale, Pennsylvania, where she worked for the Mennonite Publishing House. Throughout her life, she supported and collaborated with her husband in his voluminous research on Amish, Hutterites and Mennonites. Together they had three children--Ann Elizabeth, Mary Irene and Laura Elaine--and seven grandchildren.

In 1977 Hostetler received a Ph.D. in Religious Thought from the University of Pennsylvania. Her doctoral thesis, substantially revised and expanded, appeared in the Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History (SAMH) series with the title American Mennonites and Protestant Movements: A Community Paradigm (Herald Press, 1987). In addition to this seminal work on the history and theology of Mennonites in eastern Pennsylvania, she also copy-edited The Complete Writings of Menno Simons and published numerous articles on Amish, Anabaptist and Pietist groups, including six essays in The Mennonite Quarterly Review. …
