Herm Albright Revisited

Two weeks ago I asked, "Who was Herm Albright?"  I've had a few people tell me that they searched and couldn't find anything.  I finally ran across an entry for Herman Oliver Albright at AskART.

He was a painter and lithographer, born on January 29, 1876 in Mannheim, Germany.  He emmigrated to the United States and settled in San Francisco in 1905.  He held a job with the Paul Elder Book Company for 25 years  He died on September 21, 1944.

I have been unable to find any detailed biography of Herm Albright or any information about his quotes.  I'm not entirely sure that this is the same Herm Albright, although the birth and death years in the artist's bio match up with the years cited in some of the quotes attributed to him.

Again, if you have any information you'd like to share with me, I'd be grateful.
