This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Charleston, West Virginia, Albert H. Campbell graduated from engineering school at Brown University in 1853.  He then worked as surveyor-engineer for several railroad surveys in the Southwest and West including with Lieutenant Whipple's 35th parallel expedition from Arkansas westward through Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, to California.  On this expedition Heinrich Mollhausen (1825-1905) was the official artist, but Campbell completed a number of illustrations.  He did landscapes including Mohave villages, and these sketches as well as many others were in the published report of the expedition.

Campbell did his landscape sketches of southern Arizona and California when he was with Lieutenant John G. Parke on a survey that began in San Jose, went south to San Diego, and then east along the 32nd parallel to connect with the New Mexico-Texas survey of Captain John Pope.

He was active in California until 1855, when he settled in the East. In Washington D.C., he was superintendent of Pacific Wagon Roads, and during the Civil War was Chief of the Confederacy Topographic Bureau and said to have played an important role in the South's military strategy.

He spent his later years in West Virginia as the chief engineer for railroads. He died in Ravenswood, West Virginia on February 23, 1899.
