Julia C Bulette Chapter #1864
E Clampus Vitus

Credo Quia Absurdum...  I believe it because it is absurd.


The Ancient and Honorable Order of ECV

First, what does E Clampus Vitus mean? Well, that is the greatest mystery of all, because none of us know what it means!

Second, what is the purpose of the society? There is a description of the society that all of you have heard. It is claimed ECV is a historical drinking society; others claim it to be a drinking historical society. The debate continues; it has never been solved.

Third, the objectives of ECV are well known: Members swear to take care of the widows and orphans — especially the widows.



Who was Julia?

Nevada’s history is filled with notable women, some, as with Julia C. Bulette, for actions that today are socially questionable, even illegal in some counties. With Bulette, her notoriety began with the beginnings of what is now a state, and with such notoriety come legends, fiction filled legends that are fun to discuss, but have no basis in fact…. A town filled with men looking to get rich is a prize worth going after for any respectable prostitute…. Bulette arrived in 1863, after working in many of California’s mining camps as a prostitute, and set up shop. There are some that believe she may have been among the first of her profession to do so, but that is highly unlikely. The villages of Dayton, Johntown, and Silver City existed before the Comstock Lode was discovered. There are few records available from the period detailing the lives of prostitutes, and much of what has been written about Bulette is pure fiction. What is known is that she was a friend to the fire companies of the district, even being made an honorary member of Engine Company Number One….
