    • Newspaper Obituary - December 4, 1918 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Albert S. Mattison Dies Of Influenza - The report of the death of Albert S. Mattison in Detroit, on November 27th came as a severe shock to his many friends in Pulaski and vicinity. Mr. Mattison attended the Pulaski High School a number of years, and was graduated with the class of 1902. He entered Cornell University with the class of 1907, and after the completion of his course there was engaged in mechanical engineering in Buffalo, and later in Detroit. He was considered the best authority on ventilation in Detroit, and one of the most brilliant and promising engineers of the city. He had recently taken the contract for the ventilation of the Ford Hospital (2000 beds), the largest contract ever let in the State of Michigan. For the past two years he had been extensively engaged in work for the Government, connected with the building of airoplanes and submarines. He was a member of the Detroit Engineering Society, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers. In High School and College, Albert made many close and lasting friends, and also in business where he was known as a man of keen foresight, unquestioned integrity and ability. He has always been known to his friends as "Matty" and the high esteem in which they held him is contained in the expressions always used by them when a person was desired upon whome they could rely: "You can depend on Matty". In his death his friends have lost a true and loyal companion and the community a faithful, progressive and substantial citizen. Mr. Mattison was born in the town of Albion, August 26, 1883. He was united in marriage with Miss Iona Witherill of Sardinia, N. Y., on Sept. 18, 1907. He was taken with the influenza the Saturday preceeding his death, and it rapidly developed into pneumonia, despite all the care and attention possible to be given. Funeral service conducted by the Rev. H. D. B. MacNeil were held at the residence of his parents in the town of Albion, December 1st and interment made in Riverside Cemetery at Altmar. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Iona Mattison of Detroit; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel G. Mattison and one brother George Mattison, all of the town of Albion.
