Albert O. "Bud" Carlton, undated


Dublin Core


Albert O. Carlton leans against a doorway to a brick building in what looks to be an alleyway. Both hands in his pockets, he wears a three piece suit and a bowler cap. A camera appears to be perched on a stand of some kind in the right side of the photograph, nearly level with his shins.

Albert O. "Bud" Carlton was born February 18, 1872 to James A. and Mary Elizabeth (Augustine) Carlton in Clarksville, Iowa. On April 4, 1911, he married Edna May Baker, born to John and Dora (Hotopp) Baker on October 8, 1866. The couple had three children: Alice, Albert, and Helen.

In 1913, the Carltons moved to Iowa City, where Albert worked for the Iowa-Illinois Gas and Electric Company before being transferred to the plant in Coralville. The family returned to Coralville in 1935. Albert was also part of the Coralville City Council, acting as Recorder for five years. In March of 1945, Albert retired from the plant. He died ten years later in May of 1955. Edna May passed in May of 1960 (Iowa City Press Citizen, 1955; Iowa City Press-Citizen, 1960; Lovetinsky et al., p. 93).
