Penrose Lucas Albright in 1943 enrolled as a Midshipman in the engineering program of the United States Merchant Marine Academy. As a Midshipman, he served aboard a tanker in Pacific and Atlantic war zones for about nine months and graduated from the Academy with honors in 1946, earning a BS degree in Marine Engineering. He thereafter served on U.S. tankers as an engineering officer, attended and graduated from George Washington University Law School with a JD degree, returned to Southwestern College to complete courses for a BA degree, worked as a Legislative Assistant in the Office of U.S. Senator Schoeppel from Kansas, and finally in December of 1949 entered onto Active Duty on the aircraft carrier, USS CORAL SEA, serving as an Engineering/Legal Officer for over two years. While on the USS CORAL SEA, he was ordered TAD to the Naval Justice School at Newport, Rhode Island where he graduated first in the class. Following his tour on the USS CORAL SEA, he served for five years in the Office of the Navy Judge Advocate General. He was released from Active Duty on his request at the end of 1956 wherein he entered private practice in Washington, D.C. initially with a firm specializing in military matters, Ausell and Ansell, and subsequently joining the intellectual law firm of Mason & Mason, which then became Mason, Mason & Albright in 1958 as indicated above. Mr. Albright was, aside from his practice in Intellectual Property Law, a leading practitioner in the military law field for a number of years. He was President of the Judge Advocates Association and for many years a member of its Board of Directors. He also was the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Lawyers in Armed Forces of the American Bar Association for three years, serving on the committee for a total of six years. Following his release from Active Duty, he remained active in the U.S. Naval Reserve, and in 1976 was selected to the grade of Rear Admiral, Judge Advocate Generals Corps, U.S. Naval Reserve, serving for four years thereafter as the Director, Naval Reserve Law Programs.
