Ufa, formerly a province of Imperial Russia between the Volga and the Ural Mountains, where a daughter settlement was made about 1894 with its center in Davlekanovo, 90 km. west of the city of Ufa. Until the Revolution of 1917 the settlement made extraordinary economic and cultural progress. It maintained a secondary school in Davlekanovo (a seven-year course, and later nine) and periodically also a Bible school. In the village there were two small Mennonite congregations, and in the neighborhood there were a number more, among them Berezovka, Gortchakovo, and Karanbash. Most of the settlers were farmers; in Davlekanovo there were several mill owners and merchants.
