From Salt Lake City, Utah. Married to Thelma Morton.
"Alton 'Al' Morton (1905-1985) bought his first 8mm camera with money earned as a Salt Lake City area mail carrier, his first steady job after the Great Depression. In 1942, Morton helped to found the Utah Cine Arts Club, an organization of amateur filmmakers whose members participated in a national culture of art, innovation and exchange predating the independent film movements of New Hollywood and the 1960s."
Some of Al Morton's films as well as an interview with his daughter about his films can be found at, Alton Morton independent film collection, 1947-1968, Archives West .
