History:  

The city is named after Albert Miller Lea, a topographer with the United States Dragoons, who surveyed southern Minnesota and northern Iowa in 1835, including the current site of Albert Lea. Captain Nathan Boone, a son of Daniel Boone, was the scout for Lea's unit.

Albert Lea received national attention in 1959 after Local 6 of the United Packinghouse Workers of America went on strike against Wilson & Co. (one of the Big Four meatpacking plants at the time) over issues involving mandatory overtime requirements. When Wilson & Co. attempted to operate the plant with replacement workers, violence erupted and split the town. During the 109-day strike, Governor Orville Freeman acted to quell the violence by closing the plant, calling in the Minnesota National Guard, and declaring martial law. Although widely criticized in the editorial press, a Federal district court in Minneapolis upheld the Governor's decision but ordered the plant turned back to Wilson & Co. just days later.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

ALBERT LEA Township, first settled in the summer of 1855, organized in 1857, took the name of its village, which was platted in October 1856 and was incorporated as a city March 11, 1878. Its post office began in 1856, and it had a station of the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line) and the Chicago Great Western Railroad. The name was adopted from the large adjoining lake on the southeast, to which Joseph N. Nicollet gave it in honor of Albert Miller Lea, who in 1835 explored and mapped streams and lakes in this county.
