February 12, 1909
The town of Ulm (Prairie County) was incorporated. Ulm is located on U.S. Highway 79 between Clarendon (Monroe County) and Stuttgart (Arkansas County). Although the town is named for a city in southern Germany, the pronunciation differs from the German, with Arkansans speaking the name of the town as a two-syllable word (Ull-im). Ulm native Bill Kerksieck pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies major league baseball team in 1939, appearing in twenty-three games that year.
