Source: LIFE SKETCHES EXECUTIVE OFFICERS MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE STATE OF NEW YORK 1873. BY WILLIAM H. McELROT AND ALEX. McBRIDE

ALBION P. HIGGINS, youngest son of Rev. JOSEPH HIGGINS, was born October 13, 1824, in Waldo county, Maine. He received an academic education at Parsonsfield Seminary, in that State, came to New York in 1852, and has since been engaged in the piano business — connected with the firm of T. S. BERRY & Co., 789 Broadway, but making his residence in Brooklyn. He has been a Republican since the formation of the party, but never ran for office until last November, when he was elected to the Assembly from the 5th district of Kings county (7th and 20th wards of Brooklyn), by a majority of 845 over JOHN L. HILL, the Democratic and Liberal candidate.
Mr. HIGGINS is a man of much practiqal good sense, and possesses many qualifications desirable in a law-maker. He bids fair to make an excellent record. He is a member of the Committees on Cities, and State Charitable Institutions.
