According to his obituary, published in the newspaper Nordkap on 28 October, Eilert Andreas Wulff was born in Kvæfjord, Troms, Norway, in 1874.
After completing his studies at Tromsø Lærerskole, a teacher’s college, in 1895, he was employed as a teacher at Skjervø, where he stayed for two years.
During the following year, he completed further studies in the city of Trondheim, in preparation for a middle school exam (middelskolens avgangseksamen), which he completed in 1898.
On 15 August 1898, he was employed as a teacher at the Hammerfest Middelskole, a middle school, with added responsibilities also at the city’s primary school (folkeskolen), teaching gymnastics and carpentry.
Wulff was considered a friendly and first-class teacher, with the rare ability to ensure discipline in the classroom.
Eilert Wulff made many friends, and they shared in his family’s grief; he left us far too soon.
The funeral took place from the family home at noon on Saturday 29 October 1904.
