Albert Schmid, Electrical Engineer

Albert Schmid, widely known electrical and mechanical engineer, and for many years with the Westinghouse Electric Company, died at the St. Hubert Hotel in this city yesterday. Bornin Switzerland sixty-two years ago, he came to the United States in 1882 and became a citizen shortly afterward.

Mr. Schmid associated himself with the Westinghouse Company at the instance of the late George Westinghouse and was its first chief engineer and later became general superintendent. His skill in designing electrical apparatus contributed very largely to the success of the alternating current electric system, and to railway apparatus.

When the European Westinghouse electric companies were organized Mr. Schmid was designated for important work abroad, and continued thereafter to occupy important executive positions in them, residing in France for a number of years.
