Ulrich Graf (6 July 1878 – 3 March 1950) was one of the earliest members of the Nazi Party and of the inner-circle of Adolf Hitler. During the First World War he became a member of the German Workers' Party and was a founding member of the Sturmabteilung (SA). In 1921 he became member number 2882 of the NSDAP. By the time Hitler came to power, he was a Sturmbannführer in the SS.

In December 1924 Graf was elected Councillor in Munich and went to office 1 January 1925.[1] In that same year he rejoined the forbidden, newly founded NSDAP as member nr. 8. From the end of 1925 he was assessor of the NSDAP supreme court of justice. He was re-elected as Councillor in 1929.

As from 1935 he became counsellor of Munich in 1936, Graf was elected to the Reichstag. In 1948, Graf was sentenced to five years hard labor and died in March 1950.
