Justice H.Rodgers' 1891 volume, Colusa County Biographical Sketches of Pioneers and Prominent Residents, notes of Harmon Albery, "...H. M. Albery, the present District Attorney of Colusa County,...became proficient in a knowledge of the law. While serving as prosecuting attorney, the criminal element of his district had reason to fear his ability, for not one of the many indictments prepared by him was quashed."
