Albert Simonson in Santa Ysabel.
Albert Simonson has researched and documented much of the early history of Alpine and San Diego county. His is a valuable contributor to the archives of The Alpine Historical Society.
Albert, who lives with his wife Bonnie Gendron in Santa Ysabel, is a former Alpine resident and retired research engineer. He has spent much of his life probing ruins in Scandinavia, North Africa and the Andean and Mayan civilizations. Working with Alpine’s Back Country Land Trust and other local historians and archaeologists, he has compiled a vast array of information. Albert has the unique ability to paint a picture of historical figures with his words.
The Alpine Historical Society, with Albert’s permission, “borrowed” his “Tattered Tidbits” title for its newsletter and the monthly columns that appear in The Alpine Sun Shopper. The name just seemed too perfect to resist. Thank you, Albert!
Albert’s works not only include tales of Alpine, but also other areas in San Diego County. We continue to add additional works to our site as Albert provides them to us.
