Biography of Albert Fehr


Fehr, Albert, Buffalo, son of Joseph and Mary (Seeburger) Fehr, was born in Lyons, Wayne county, N.Y., December 12, 1858. His father, Joseph Fehr, a native of Germany, came to this country when he was a young man, settling in Buffalo and thence removing to Lyons, where he conducted a meat market. Albert Fehr attended the public schools of his native village and Bryant & Stratton's Business College at Rochester, from which he graduated. He was then engaged for four years in the Lyons (N. Y.) post-office as a clerk, and later entered the employ of the American Express Company at Lyons, remaining one year. He then entered the the employ of the New York Central Railroad as a freight clerk and cashier, and a year later returned to the employ of the American Express Company, and was sent to Middletown, N. Y.. to act in the capacity of chief clerk. While there his work was so satisfactory that the general superintendent transferred him to the general office at Buffalo, where he remained ten years. In 1892 he was appointed assistant agent, and in 1896 his duties were increased by his being placed in charge of the drivers, the transfer work and the Green street station. Mr. Fehr has many friends, and has risen to his present position through the use of progressive ideas, and by strict attention to business.
