Ludwig was born in 1919 in Melfort, Saskatchewan. Ludwig joined the Canadian Army in 1940, and transferred to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941. Albert was forced to abandon his plane over France.
Ludwig served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for the Social Credit Party of Alberta through four terms from 1959 to 1975. Ludwig was nominated in the 1975 Alberta general election but due to his wife's terminal illness that year he did not campaign and therefore lost the election to John Kushner. After this election he left politics to practice law.
Ludwig did not limit himself to provincial politics. He ran twice federally in Calgary East for the Liberal Party of Canada, he lost both times again to John Kushner who also left provincial politics to run federally. After failing to gain office federally he was appointed as a Judge to the Provincial Criminal Court of Alberta and served that position from 1980 until his retirement 1989.
Ludwig was nominated as the Liberal candidate in Calgary Foothills only days before the 1997 Alberta general election but was unable to regain a seat in the legislature and was defeated by incumbent Pat Black.
