Ula Love was a 1921 graduate of Grove High School. In the yearbook, her given name was spelled Eula. In all material other than the yearbook, including her movie credits and grave stone, the name is spelled Ula.

Ula became interested in dramatics after her elocution classes at Grove. After Grove High School she attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, for one year. She later studied dramatics in Chicago. She moved to Hollywood and was "discovered" by Sid Grauman of the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater. Moving on to New York City, she was an understudy for Eve Arden in the Ziegfeld Follies and also became a Ziegfeld girl.

In 1991 the Heritage Center sponsored a "With Love from Paris" celebration. In her late 80's Miss Love attended the celebration. The Center filmed the celebration and the tape is available at the center.

Ula Love is buried in the Love family plot in Maplewood Cemetery. A link to photos of the Love cemetery markers are HERE .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

By the dates of the 1936 Follies Florense Ziefeld was deceased

The  1936  Follies  in which Ula Love performed:


Presented by: Mrs. Florenz Ziegfeld (Lee Shubert eventually
shared billing on this edition)
Opened: The Winter Garden, January 30 (227 perfs)
Book and lyrics: David Freeman, Ira Gershwin and others
Score: Vernon Duke and others
Dance Directors: Robert Alton and George Balanchine
Costumes: Vincent Minnelli and others
Directors: John Murray Anderson and Edward C. Lilley
Featuring: Fanny Brice, Josephine Baker, Gertrude Neisen, Bob Hope, the Nicholas Brothers and Eve Arden. Cast replacements included Bobby Clark and Gypsy Rose Lee.
Notes: Once again, Lee Shubert put together a surprisingly good Follies, packed with first class talent in every department. Minnelli draped the chorines in cellophane, and Brice reprised her Baby Snooks character. One skit was a satire of Warner Brothers screen musicals, with Brice as "Ruby Blondell," Bob Hope as "Bing Powell" and Gertrude Neisen as "Delores Del Morgan." The musical highlight was "I Can't Get Started," with Hope attempting Arden by listing his world-class accomplishments. The run was interrupted when Brice fell ill in May. When it resumed in September, Hope, Baker and Neisen were gone -- and replaced by comic Bobby Clark and burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee. In 2001, this edition was staged in concert form by the NY City Center Encores! series -- resulting in a superb recording that has rekindled interest in this edition.
