Harold Albrecht, a native of Dermott, Chicot County, Arkansas, was born July 17, 1904. In his early twenties, he was employed as a radio engineer in the Merchant Marines, circa 1925-1930, working on the Mississippi River where he also designed levees. He later attended the University of Arkansas where he studied electrical engineering, graduating as one of the top in his class in 1932. Albrecht went on to work at Radio Corporation of America (RCA) where he invented various radar transmitters. During the Spanish Civil War, Albrecht installed one of those transmitters in Spain for the resistance forces opposing Franco. He narrowly escaped capture by Franco and returned to the United States where he continued to work at RCA in missiles. Harold Denton Albrecht died October 1, 1981 and is buried in Dermott City Cemetery in Chicot County, Arkansas.
