Wolf Erhardt Anton George Trutzschuler von Falkenstein

      According to the San Francisco Public Library Artist File Index, Wolo's real name was Wolf Erhardt Anton George Trutzschuler von Falkenstein. The San Francisco Public Library Artist File is a collection of files on artists and architects who have lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area. The files contain: newspaper clippings, announcements of gallery shows, obituaries, magazine articles, exhibit catalogs or other items.

      I have included a list of what they have on him in the attached material. He was born in Germany in 1902, and was a refugee from Nazi Germany, according to a reviewer who claimed to have known him then. Wrote and illustrated five children's books: "Sir Archibald", "Amanda", "The Secret Of The Ancient Oak", "Friendship Valley", and "Tweedles Be Brave". I have included bibliographical information on the various editions. He also illustrated the "Hippo Cook Book", and "A Children's Music Box". "I saw you there" was an article he did for the San Francisco paper for several years in the 1930's. And he did a television puppet show in the late 1950's and early 1960's. He also illustrated greeting cards, did lots of hospital murals, and even a few murals in restaurants, as well as advertisement art. According to his nephew he drew with both hands simultaneously as he created his works. He did the puppetry in a 1950's movie called "Lili".

 Excerpt from the book
Baba began with the following quotation: "Love originates first in the heart of the beloved; unless the lamp burns, the moth will not be mad after it.!" Continuing, Baba said, "It is assumed that there is a lover and the beloved, and the connecting link between the two is love. Although God is love universal, let us for the sake of explanation suppose that God at first begins to love or attract a desirer who, however, not understanding it, begins to resist. The moment that sufficient love has been created in the desirer for God, he then becomes indifferent. In this way, the process of attraction and repulsion continues for a long time, ultimately ending in the union of the two. This is exactly what Hafiz tries to explain in the following couplet: "With one end of the hair in my hand, and the other end in the Friend's, since years, the tug of war is going on, on this point.!'" 
The fire of love that was smoldering silently of late in many of the tiny hearts, within a week of the Master's self-imprisonment, began to give out sparks. Strings of pearl-like tears began to flow freely from many little eyes every now and then and without apparent reason. This much was certain: it was neither due to any physical pain or privations, nor was it due to any grief. Many of the boys on the contrary found relief and a kind of pleasure in weeping out their hears. Meditation and concentration, weeping and crying, appealed to them more than eating, sleeping and playing. They were tears of love.

Book Description
What is it like to be an intimate disciple of the Avatar (spiritual leader) of the age? In this fascinating and unique account, Ramjoo Abdulla relates how he was drawn to Meher Baba in India in 1922 when Ramjoo was only 23 years old, and then joined Baba's circle of disciples. 
A Muslim who was suspicious of non-Muslims, Ramjoo was at first merely intrigued by his new friend and what he describes as Baba's magnetic personality. A series of events, however, convinced Ramjoo that Baba was the true friend of his heart, aware of his every thought and feeling. 
Ramjoo joined the circle as Baba was beginning his spiritual work, gathering and training his first disciples and opening his first ashram, Manzil-e-Meem (Abode of the Master). Ramjoo kept the diary at Baba's request. Writing as it is happening, Ramjoo describes events at the Manzil without professing any special insight into the workings of this often puzzling, often amazing Master. He reports such things as Baba saving a disciple, who was at a distance, from drowning by throwing a bicycle into a well; or that Baba did not eat for extended periods of time. 
Baba's discourses especially fascinated the young disciples. Ramjoo describes these talks as "the most logical explanation of divinity and of the whole of creation, as far as the reach of the intellect allows, that has ever been brought to light." They heard talks on yoga, spiritual liberation, and the circle of a Perfect Master. Many of these discourses are reproduced verbatim, including some of Baba's poetry and his masterly translations of Hafiz and Rumi. 
Accounts of discipleship usually offer the summary wisdom of hindsight, but Ramjoo's story is a blow-by-blow description of spiritual apprenticeship. He pulls no punches about the hardship, frustrations and also the joys. The disciples had to perform unaccustomed manual labor (most were from educated families). They went on foot-journeys, endured scant food and sleep and abided by a complex set of rules. Games and humor were also part of the daily routine. The young aspirants felt themselves to be on a thrilling spiritual adventure worth dying for. 
We get a picture of Meher Baba who is both master psychologist and divine friend. Each member of the circle had to be willing to confront and overcome his own ego. Ramjoo tells of disciples pushed to what seemed to be the breaking point, only to discover within greater love and determination. He says, "in spite of fifty persons of different religions, ideas, and ages occupied with various different duties living under the single roof of the Manzil, the atmosphere is one of great harmony." 
The second part of the book unfolds another unforgettable story. The Meher Ashram (later called the Prem, or Love, Ashram) was a school for boys that Meher Baba organized along conventional lines, but with unusual goals. Baba stated that by the end of the course, these boys from all castes and creeds would "no longer have any bias or prejudice against any particular religion." The curriculum was designed to nurture spiritual as well as academic potential, and Baba himself taught the spiritual classes. He used an alphabet board to communicate because he had already begun to maintain silence. 
Over one hundred boys were enrolled. Soon after the school opened, the spark of divine love was ignited in the children's hearts. Baba began spending more time with them, and they developed a magnetic attachment to him, even bursting into sobs if deprived of his company - thus the "Sobs and Throbs" title of this section. 
One boy, Ali Akbar, exhibited fiery devotion to Baba. Shortly after he arrived, Ali's Muslim relatives began to object to his staying in school. They had signed a promise to let Ali stay for the full two-year term, but they abruptly removed him. Compelled by intense love, the 14-year-old boy managed to return. Every time Ali was taken away, he contrived a way back. 
Ramjoo says of the school's closing: "all the Meher Ashram boys of both its sections as a matter of fact were that day let loose over the country with a 'silent message' of divine love that will sooner or later speak of itself." The same may be said of Ramjoo and his fellow disciples in Manzil-e-Meem. 
The dynamics of the highly personal relationship with a spiritual master are revealed in Ramjoo's account. It is rare to live a life utterly devoted to love; it is also rare to read a detailed account of such a life. Ramjoo's Diaries immensely enriches the literature of spiritual discipleship.

Editorial Reviews from Amazon (I think this is available from Amazon.com)

From Horn Book 

Sir Archibald is a little monkey who volunteers to retrieve the lost crown of the lion King from Grizzlegrimm and the Meanies. He must pass through many hazards, including the Eerie-Woods-of-the-Gnarled-Trees-with-the-Roots-in-the-Air and the Woolleywickedwhatnots. Though Sir Archibald succeeds by pretending the dangers don't exist, the book is a sadly outdated pastiche of Dr. Seuss and Curious George. 
 1992 The Horn Book, Inc. 

Reviewer: Al Kosh from Yuba City, CA
An absolutely wonderful children's book for the building of self esteem and courage. Wolo, the author, was a refugee from eastern Europe during WWII, and was a family friend when I was a child. The book, as do each of his books, is a story of courage in the face of adversity. It reflects Wolo's escape from Hitler's tyranny. Sir Archibald is a great hero in this book of good and evil.

Posted 04/23/02 

I am looking for any stories, info about my great uncle, Wolo, and most especially film footage of one of his puppet shows, and photos of his murals in hospitals. Wolo was born Noble, in Germany in 1902 (Baron Wolff Von Trutschler) and lived in San Francisco from the 1940's until his death in 1989. He did a puppet show on TV in the late 50's-early 60's, tons of murals in hospitals, and a few restaurants. He wrote and illustrated 5 children's books, Sir Archibald, Amanda, The Secret Of The Ancient Oak, Friendship Valley, and Tweedles Be Brave, as well as illustrating the Hippo Cook Book, and A Children's Music Box. He had a collum/cartoon in the S.F. paper for a number of years called "I saw you there" in the late 1930's. He also did greeting and holiday cards, as well as various advertisements artwork. He created his art, drawing with both hands simultaneously. He did the puppets and puppet work in a 1950's movie called "Lili." Any stories or information would be greatly appreciated.

Continuing, Baba said, "It is assumed that there is a lover and the beloved, and the connecting link between the two is love. Although God is love universal, let us for the sake of explanation suppose that God at first begins to love or attract a desirer who, however, not understanding it, begins to resist. The moment that sufficient love has been created in the desirer for God, he then becomes indifferent. In this way, the process of attraction and repulsion continues for a long time, ultimately ending in the union of the two. This is exactly what Hafiz tries to explain in the following couplet: "With one end of the hair in my hand, and the other end in the Friend's, since years, the tug of war is going on, on this point.!'" The fire of love that was smoldering silently of late in many of the tiny hearts, within a week of the Master's self-imprisonment, began to give out sparks. Strings of pearl-like tears began to flow freely from many little eyes every now and then and without apparent reason. This much was certain: it was neither due to any physical pain or privations, nor was it due to any grief. Many of the boys on the contrary found relief and a kind of pleasure in weeping out their hears. Meditation and concentration, weeping and crying, appealed to them more than eating, sleeping and playing. They were tears of love. Editorial Reviews from Amazon Book Description What is it like to be an intimate disciple of the Avatar (spiritual leader) of the age? In this fascinating and unique account, Ramjoo Abdulla relates how he was drawn to Meher Baba in India in 1922 when Ramjoo was only 23 years old, and then joined Baba's circle of disciples. A Muslim who was suspicious of non-Muslims, Ramjoo was at first merely intrigued by his new friend and what he describes as Baba's magnetic personality. A series of events, however, convinced Ramjoo that Baba was the true friend of his heart, aware of his every thought and feeling. Ramjoo joined the circle as Baba was beginning his spiritual work, gathering and training his first disciples and opening his first ashram, Manzil-e-Meem (Abode of the Master). Ramjoo kept the diary at Baba's request. Writing as it is happening, Ramjoo describes events at the Manzil without professing any special insight into the workings of this often puzzling, often amazing Master. He reports such things as Baba saving a disciple, who was at a distance, from drowning by throwing a bicycle into a well; or that Baba did not eat for extended periods of time. Baba's discourses especially fascinated the young disciples. Ramjoo describes these talks as "the most logical explanation of divinity and of the whole of creation, as far as the reach of the intellect allows, that has ever been brought to light." They heard talks on yoga, spiritual liberation, and the circle of a Perfect Master. Many of these discourses are reproduced verbatim, including some of Baba's poetry and his masterly translations of Hafiz and Rumi. Accounts of discipleship usually offer the summary wisdom of hindsight, but Ramjoo's story is a blow-by-blow description of spiritual apprenticeship. He pulls no punches about the hardship, frustrations and also the joys. The disciples had to perform unaccustomed manual labor (most were from educated families). They went on foot-journeys, endured scant food and sleep and abided by a complex set of rules. Games and humor were also part of the daily routine. The young aspirants felt themselves to be on a thrilling spiritual adventure worth dying for. We get a picture of Meher Baba who is both master psychologist and divine friend. Each member of the circle had to be willing to confront and overcome his own ego. Ramjoo tells of disciples pushed to what seemed to be the breaking point, only to discover within greater love and determination. He says, "in spite of fifty persons of different religions, ideas, and ages occupied with various different duties living under the single roof of the Manzil, the atmosphere is one of great harmony." The second part of the book unfolds another unforgettable story. The Meher Ashram (later called the Prem, or Love, Ashram) was a school for boys that Meher Baba organized along conventional lines, but with unusual goals. Baba stated that by the end of the course, these boys from all castes and creeds would "no longer have any bias or prejudice against any particular religion." The curriculum was designed to nurture spiritual as well as academic potential, and Baba himself taught the spiritual classes. He used an alphabet board to communicate because he had already begun to maintain silence. Over one hundred boys were enrolled. Soon after the school opened, the spark of divine love was ignited in the children's hearts. Baba began spending more time with them, and they developed a magnetic attachment to him, even bursting into sobs if deprived of his company - thus the "Sobs and Throbs" title of this section. One boy, Ali Akbar, exhibited fiery devotion to Baba. Shortly after he arrived, Ali's Muslim relatives began to object to his staying in school. They had signed a promise to let Ali stay for the full two-year term, but they abruptly removed him. Compelled by intense love, the 14-year-old boy managed to return. Every time Ali was taken away, he contrived a way back. Ramjoo says of the school's closing: "all the Meher Ashram boys of both its sections as a matter of fact were that day let loose over the country with a 'silent message' of divine love that will sooner or later speak of itself." The same may be said of Ramjoo and his fellow disciples in Manzil-e-Meem. The dynamics of the highly personal relationship with a spiritual master are revealed in Ramjoo's account. It is rare to live a life utterly devoted to love; it is also rare to read a detailed account of such a life. Ramjoo's Diaries immensely enriches the literature of spiritual discipleship. * * * * * * * * * Title Sir Archibald. Author Wolo. Published New York, Morrow, 1944. Description 37 p.

Clark City Press, 1991, 56 p. Editorial Reviews from Amazon (I think this is available from Amazon.com) From Horn Book Sir Archibald is a little monkey who volunteers to retrieve the lost crown of the lion King from Grizzlegrimm and the Meanies. He must pass through many hazards, including the Eerie-Woods-of-the-Gnarled-Trees-with-the-Roots-in-the-Air and the Woolleywickedwhatnots. Though Sir Archibald succeeds by pretending the dangers don't exist, the book is a sadly outdated pastiche of Dr. Seuss and Curious George. 1992 The Horn Book, Inc. Reviewer: Al Kosh from Yuba City, CA An absolutely wonderful children's book for the building of self esteem and courage. Wolo, the author, was a refugee from eastern Europe during WWII, and was a family friend when I was a child. The book, as do each of his books, is a story of courage in the face of adversity. It reflects Wolo's escape from Hitler's tyranny. Sir Archibald is a great hero in this book of good and evil. * * * * * * * * Title Secret of the ancient oak, by Wolo.

I did not have time to pursue this and get you an answer back quickly, but you might email this person yourself if you are interested. [James Duvall] Posted 04/23/02 I am looking for any stories, info about my great uncle, Wolo, and most especially film footage of one of his puppet shows, and photos of his murals in hospitals. Wolo was born Noble, in Germany in 1902 (Baron Wolff Von Trutschler) and lived in San Francisco from the 1940's until his death in 1989. He did a puppet show on TV in the late 50's-early 60's, tons of murals in hospitals, and a few restaurants. He wrote and illustrated 5 children's books, Sir Archibald, Amanda, The Secret Of The Ancient Oak, Friendship Valley, and Tweedles Be Brave, as well as illustrating the Hippo Cook Book, and A Children's Music Box. He had a collum/cartoon in the S.F. paper for a number of years called "I saw you there" in the late 1930's. He also did greeting and holiday cards, as well as various advertisements artwork. He created his art, drawing with both hands simultaneously. He did the puppets and puppet work in a 1950's movie called "Lili." Any stories or information would be greatly appreciated.
