Today they were playing a piece by Heinichen and posted that he attended a certain school "that his father ALSO had attended." (CAPS mine for focus.)
That seemed odd phrasing to me; I would have said "that his father had ALSO attended." Although it might be incorrect to split "had" from "attended" with the ALSO, it seems correct to me in Midwestern U.S.A. English.
You could also say "that his father had attended ALSO."
All three versions are understandable; any comments or preferences?
