Mark M. Albert worked for both the Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian National Railways from 1912 to 1953 in Edson. He served in the American Army as a road foreman of locomotives for World War I. While in Edson, he was a member of the Edson Town Band and concert orchestra (cello & tuba), served on the School Board and Board of Trade. he also had a unique, in Canada, collection of English gold coins. Mark Albert died in 1977 in Edson, Alberta. His date of birth is unknown. He was married and had one son as far as we know.
Several boxes of material were found in the attic of Mark Albert's house located at 5022-7th Ave. in Edson after his death and donated to the Red Brick Arts Centre. After they took what they wanted, they in turn donated it to the Edson Archives.
