Albert worked as a guide for the wealthy copper-mining heir Edmond Guggenheim (1888-1972), who purchased, after World War I, the camp known as Rockledge built in 1898 by Richard Limburg on Lower Saranac Lake. Ed was a great friend and collector of the work of the noted taxidermist Charles Dickert. Albert Davidson shared this interest. His home at 17 Hope Street in Saranac Lake contained a number of Adirondack specimens, including a deer's head, deer hoof coat rack, an owl, a squirrel and so on."

Albert H. Davidsons Are 50 Years Wed

Mr. and Mrs. Albert H. Davidson, of 17 Hope st., have returned from Boston, Mass., where they celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary at the home of their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Wright. The anniversary dinner party was held in the private dining room of the 1775 House in Lexington, Mass., on May 12. 

The dining room was decorated with gladioli, snap dragons and carnations. The table decorations were in gold and white. A wedding cake was served on a musical tray which played the Wedding March.

The couple received many lovely gifts in addition to a shower greeting cards.

While there, Mr. and Mrs. Davidson spent the week-end at the summer home of their son-in-law and daughter at West Harwick, Cape Cod. They were accompanied on the trip by Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Bosworth, of the State rd.
