Albert Edward Huckerby (1866–1951)

Mr. Albert E. Huckerby, 85 years, of Wellington-street, Richmond, who had been associated with the Theatrical and Amusement Employes' Association for 42 years, died yesterday.

He was the founder of the association, and was the first secretary of the Victorian branch, a position he held until about two years ago. He was also the Federal secretary.

Mr. Huckerby was a popular figure in the trade union movement, and had a genial disposition. Mr. Huckerby was born in South Yarra, but went to live in Richmond as a boy, and remained there until his death. Before forming the union he was by trade a glass beveller.

For 20 years he was a member of Richmond city council, and was mayor in 1936, the year in which he and his wife celebrated their golden wedding. Mrs. Huckerby died in 1940.
