Albert W. Fuller (1854-1934) was an American architect practicing in Albany, New York.

Life and career[edit]

Fuller was born in the town of Clinton, New York. From 1873 to 1879 he trained as a draftsman in the office of Albany architects Ogden & Wright. He then opened his own office. In 1883 he formed a partnership with William A. Wheeler, a native Albanian who had studied under Boston architects. This firm lasted until 1897. He practiced alone until 1900, when he formed a partnership with William B. Pitcher (1864-1921), a former draftsman of Fuller's. The firm was incorporated in January 1906,[1] and Pitcher retired in 1909, due to poor health.[2] Fuller then established a partnership with William P. Robinson.[3] The firm lasted until 1934, Fuller's death. Fuller died in his office, while resting from his work. His death was attributed to heart disease.[4]
