Peter S. Hartman (1846-1934), the son of David and Elizabeth Burkholder Hartman, was a success­ful farmer, businessman, and lay church worker of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Though he at first opposed the Sunday-school movement, he later became an active leader and teacher in the Sunday school. He was the first solicitor for the Eastern Mennonite Col­lege and was one of its founders and ardent sup­porters. He was an enthusiastic speaker and the talk which appealed most to the students was entitled, "Reminiscences of the Civil War." Stu­dents knew him as "Uncle Pete." He served as a member of the General Mission Board for a num­ber of years. He was a strong temperance advocate.
