Albert Dano Grant County, New Mexico

Albert Dano, of Silver City, who has mining interests in the Burro Mountains and is engaged in general development work, has resided in New Mexico for twenty-five years.

 He was born in Baraboo, Wisconsin, May 16, 1857, a son of William H. and Margaret Dano. His early life was spent in his native city, his education acquired in the public schools there, and he entered upon his business career as a drug clerk in Baraboo. In 1880, at the age of twenty-three years, he came to New Mexico and lived at different times in Socorro, Santa Fe and Albuquerque, but devoted much of the time to business interests in Santa Fe. He also mined in various places.

About ten years ago he came to Silver City, where he has since engaged in business. He now has good copper mining properties in the Burro Mountains, which he is operating independently, and he is also engaged in general development work, his labors proving of direct and immediate benefit in the up-building and progress of this part of the Territory. His co-operation can always be counted upon as a factor in the furtherance of any movement for the public good.
