Biography

Alfred M. Shuey, a Civil War veteran from Ohio, was an lifelong musician and prolific composer, publishing over 50 different musical compositions. He came to Minneapolis at age 17, immediately joined a small orchestra, and was a participant in the first public performance of any kind with an orchestra in Minneapolis in 1866. In 1876, he established the Minneapolis Orchestra union, and two years later he became the organist and choir leader at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, where he remained for 20 years. He remained an active musician, performing many concerts throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul, until the late 1920s.

He was also an active member of the Shriners and Masons. He is remembered as the "Father of all uniformed drills and parade organizations" within the Shriners, because he developed the first parade drills for the organization. He was a founding member of one of the earliest Shriner temples in Minneapolis. He was an active Mason for 60 years, including 35 years as Captain of the Zuhrah temple. He died at age 83 on April 8, 1930 of a cerebral hemorrhage, one day before his 84th birthday.
