Albert Berg was born in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1864. He contracted spinal meningitis as a child, leaving him deaf, and attended the Indiana Institution for the Deaf in Indianapolis before enrolling in the school that later became known as Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. Berg returned to Lafayette and became the first football coach at Purdue in 1887 at the age of twenty-three. Berg later became a deaf advocate and teacher at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
