The Albert Haller Foundation annually allocates earnings to organizations in Clallam County that serve low-income individuals and families, support education, and to area food banks.
It also grants annual scholarships to Clallam County students.
Haller was born in Clallam County in 1903 and worked in the logging industry during the era of horses and steam donkeys.
He is described as a very competent, careful logger who out-conserved the conservation policies of that era, the United Way said.
Albert and his wife were equally thoughtful about investments, saving, and investing wisely in land, enabling them to leave an ongoing legacy to the people of Clallam County.
