Albert Pulitzer is Notable.


Albert was born after 1838. Albert Pulitzer passed away before 1950. [1]

It is uncertain, but entirely possible, Hermon Politzer/Polgar was one of Albert's children, and that Albert is the younger brother of famed Joseph Pulitzer.

If so, that would make him the the son of a wealthy grain merchant of Magyar-Jewish origin (Fulop/Philip) and a German mother (Elise Louise Berger) who was a devout Roman Catholic. His paternal grandfather would be Mihaly Pulitzer, and paternal great grandfather would be Baruch Simon Pulitzer. That also means Albert trained for the priesthood, but never attained it, and worked as a journalist, starting a NYC newspaper (The Journal) eventually sold to William Randolph Hearst. James McGrath Morris says he committed suicide in 1909 leaving behind at least one son (Walter) who had a least one daughter (Muriel; b.1920).

[Joseph had asthma, a detached retina, diabetes, and possibly manic depression.] Joszef Politzer is the Hungarian spelling of his name [1]

Pulitzer is pronounced: PULL-it-sir. [2]
