|Building Notes||A. H. Albertson, born in New Jersey on April 14, 1872, graduated from Columbia University (Ph. B. in architecture, 1895) and initially sought work as a draftsman with the firm of Clinton & Russell in New York. Albertson came to Seattle in 1907 as a representative of Howells & Stokes to help prepare a plan for the redevelopment of the downtown Metropolitan Tract. He later formed a separate partnership with Howells around 1917 and then an independent practice with Joseph W. Wilson and Paul D. Richardson, whom by 1924 were generally identified as Albertson's associates on all the firm's drawings and published works. In 1935, Albertson officially partnered with the latter, becoming Albertson, Wilson & Richardson. The firm produced a number of buildings, using a mix of styles that help generate the development of regional design through the use of appropriate architectural metaphors. |
