*non – THFHS members
Each director serves for a two year term but may be reappointed. Directors are named by the Board of Directors of HSML. Those indicated by an *asterisk are not HUBBELL descendants (as required by the IRS ). All, however, have an interest in the THFHS, and the HUBBELL MUSEUM & LIBRARY.

The Historian of HML was former Director, HAROLD B. HUBBELL, whose years of HUBBELL family research are summarized in The History & Genealogy of the Hubbell Family, and whose field notes are a major holding in HML’s HUBBELL research material and library.

PATRICIA DAWSON serves as the Librarian and Curator of HML, and is available to assist all HFHS members and other interested persons. Pat catalogs and maintains all books, research materials and memorabilia in the HML, and acts as a liaison between HML, THFHS, and other resource facilities.

The mission of HML is to preserve, protect and display the history and artifacts of the descendants of Richard Hubball through sustaining a museum, library, and archive; making them accessible to the family and others worldwide.

Additional information can be found in the periodical booklets published by the HSML.

RESEARCH Facilities:
The HML is available for HUBBELL family research purposes, in person or by e-mail, and is open to the general public by appointment.  Visitors may  make  arrangements to visit the HML by contacting Pat Dawson at the Hubbell Museum & Library by e-mail (  Pat is also available to assist with research, and will make copies of appropriate materials, where found.

VISITING The Museum & Library:
To make arrangements to visit the HUBBELL MUSEUM & LIBRARY, contact Pat Dawson, and she will assist you with your hotel and transportation plans. You may wish to visit other sights in the Des Moines area, including the ancestral home of Frederick  M. HUBBELL, Terrace Hill, which is now the Iowa governor’s mansion.

The HML also holds many artifacts and pieces of memorabilia relating to many of the HUBBELLs, in whatever way the surname may have been spelled. Those relating to EDWIN POWELL HUBBLE, astronomer, and CARL OWEN HUBBELL, professional baseball player, are just two examples. Photographs of many of these HUBBELL related items, contributed by members of the THFHS, can be seen in the Hubbell Museum & Library Gallery.

The present suite housing the HML has been made available, through the generous contribution of HFHS members, JAMES W. HUBBELL, Jr., JAMES W. HUBBELL III, and the Hubbell Realty Co., of Des Moines, IA. The contribution of HUBBELL artifacts, or a cash donation, is encouraged and deductible to the extent of the current tax regulations.

The HML’s research Library contains several different categories of reference books and research materials. The major categories are shown below.

Two endowment funds have been set up for HML through the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation, to hold bequests and contributions supporting HML.  One of the funds is an Iowa Endowment fund, offering tax credits to Iowans who contribute; the other is an unrestricted fund for anyone to contribute to.  If you would like more information or to make a contribution to these funds, contact the HML.

2 wooden cigar molds on loan from Jack Jerome Hubbell: The larger (cigarillo) is a 22” long mold of 2 mating segments, 2 ½ “ thick (when mated) x 4” wide which readily fit together.  The inner side of each segment has 20 carved, half-oval and tapered molds, running transverse, each 4” long, diameters/widths ½” at center.  Indistinct lettering appears on an edge (5/8”) of one segment reading perhaps “Miller Hubbell & Peters MFG Co” on the edge of the other segment (same side) appears equally faint lettering with patent info – a date appears to be “Oct. 25 1897”.  Smaller (cigar) mold consists of a bottom 10 3/8” long x 6” wide x 3/8” thick, closed at one end by a ¼” piece.  The inner surface has been carved with 6 oval half-molds running lengthwise, 10 1/8”.  The other end is open but may have been closed by a ¼” end-piece too.  A top is in two pieces: the first piece is joined (glued) to the bottom, measuring 5 3/16” long x 6” wide, with 6 matching half-round molds running.  The second top piece is 5” long, same width but is not joined to the bottom, rather it is hinged to the first piece (by 2 recent-vintage brass hinges and chromium screws) so it can lay back on it.  It too has 6 matching half-molds running lengthwise.  Small nail holes at the end suggest there was an end-piece to close that end.  Center diameters of the 6 molds differ: two vary from9/16” to 11/16”, a 3rd varies 5/7” to ¾”, a 4th varies ¾” to 7/8”, a 5th varies 13/16” to 15/16” and the largest has an almost round 17/16” diameter.
