520 |a Albert J. Edmunds was born in England in 1857 and immigrated to the United States in 1885. He attended Friend's school as a child and graduated from the University of London in 1877. Upon settling in the Philadelphia area, Edmunds became a librarian at Haverford College. After a short time at the Philadelphia Library, Edmunds joined the staff at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 1891 and remained there until 1936. At an early age Edmunds, who never married, devoted his life to vegetarianism and academia. Throughout his life, Edmunds studied and wrote about Christianity and Buddhism in particular and religion in general and was the author of several published works. In addition to these scholarly pursuits, he was also a prolific poet, writing hundreds of poems and publishing a book of poetry in 1906 Fairmount Park and Other Poems. Edmunds died in 1941. 
520 |a Albert Edmunds said that he would "visit" HSP after his death. HSP staff over the years have claimed to hear footsteps, typing, and other noises in the areas where Edmunds used to work. Each of these experiences had no apparent logical reason for occuring. Dr. Dan Rolph, long-time HSP staffer and folklorest, has done research and presentations on the supernatural and paranormal at HSP.
