This bicycle was used by Reverend M. Ellis. Ellis arrived in Montana in 1884 and for the next forty years served the state's Presbyterian churches in a variety of capacities, most notably as the Superintendent of Sunday School Missions. As superintendent, Ellis traveled all over the then roadless state establishing and ministering to Sunday Schools - by bicycle.
