Dr. Ehlmann was born and raised in St. Charles, MO (within the Greater St. Louis area). After high school, he spent an enlistment term in the U. S. Army, serving primarily in Japan from 1946 to 1948. After two years at Elmhurst College, he transferred to the University of Missouri at Columbia where he received his B. S. and his M. S. degrees in geology. After working for Shell Oil Company for two years, he entered the graduate program at the University of Utah, receiving his PhD in Mineralogy in 1958.
Dr. Ehlmann started his 35 year career in the Geology Department at Texas Christian University in the Fall of 1958. He now holds the title of Emeritus Professor of Geology at TCU. After retiring in the Spring of 1993, he continues his research on meteorites, primarily those in the extensive Oscar E. Monnig Meteorite Collection held in the Geology Department.
