Albert Hague was born to a Jewish family in Berlin in 1920.  He was raised as a Lutheran to protect him from Nazi persecution.

In 1937 Albert fled Germany as he was poised to become inducted into the Hitler youth movement.  He fled to Italy where he attended a music conservatory in Rome.  At the conservatory he received a scholarship to the University of Cincinatti.  He immigrated to the United States, penniless in order to avoid Germany military conscription in 1939.

He arrived in the States at the age of 18, and unable to speak any English.  In the U.S. he took the last name of his adopted father, Elliott B. Hague, who was an eye surgeon with close associations with the university.

In 1942 he graduated from university and served in the military for two years.  He then began his career as a composer.

Albert found first success on Broadway with the hit musical "Plain and Fancy" in 1955.  It was an Amish-themed show that starred Barbara Cook and the popular song, "Young and Foolish".

On Broadway, he wrote songs for the musical "Dance Me a Song", and incidental music to the plays "The Madwoman of Chaillot", "All Summer Long", and "Jennie".

He composed stage scores to "Plain and Fancy" and to "Redhead", with Tony and Grammy awards in 1959. 

Albert joined ASCAP in 1952 where his chief musical collaborators were Arnold Horwitt and Dorothy Fields. 

Popular-song compositions by Albert included "Wait For Me Darling", "One Is a Lonely Number", "This Is All Very New to Me", "Follow Your Heart", "Plenty of Pennsylvania", "Merely Marvelous", "Look Who's in Love", "My Girl Is Just Enough Woman for Me", ""Two Faces in the Dark", "Just for Once", "Telephone Book", and "Tell Irene Hello". 

Albert passed away from Cancer in Marina del Rey, California on 12 November 2001.
