Mary Harmon was born in Columbia, South Carolina to Mary Isabel Strange and David Harmon in 1920. Both parents died while she was yet a child, and she was raised by Nancy and Whitman Greene. After graduating from high school, she went to Washington, D.C. where she served as a legal secretary in the Pentagon and was located in the temporary buildings on the Mall. It was there that she met Carl Albert while he was serving in the judge advocate general's office, U.S. Army Air Corps. In his autobiography, Carl Albert recalled that first meeting: ". . . I was working away when I heard the assured rhythm of heels clicking briskly across our marble floor. I looked up into sparkling blue eyes. I mumbled some pleasantry, and Mary Harmon introduced herself in a gentle Carolina accent that softly sheathed an inordinate poise and confidence. She could have been anything from three feet to seven; it made no difference. I knew then and there that Mary Harmon was just the right size for me". They were married in 1942. She was a graduate of Columbia High School, Columbia, Missouri. A member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Congressional Club in Washington, D. C. Mary Albert is survived by her son and daughter, Dr. David Albert of Oklahoma City and Mary Frances Albert of Norman.
