Who was Herm Albright?

I found more info a couple of weeks later.  Click to view.

It appears that Herm Albright's most famous quote is, "A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."  It's a funny quote, with several possible meanings.

A friend of mine posted that quote on her blog and then asked, "Who is Herm Albright?"

From what I've been able to determine, Herm Albright lived from 1876 to 1944, and he might have been a writer for the Saturday Evening Post.  That's all I've been able to dig up, and I'm really curious.  Wikipedia doesn't have an entry, and all the search engines turn up quote after quote, but nothing about the man or his life.

Anybody have old copies of the Saturday Evening Post?  How about a little author bio?  Anything would help.
