Captain C. H. Hubbard

Captain C.H. Hubbard, president of Chicago Branch No. 3, Shipmasters Association, is yet a young man, but has already attained to considerable prominence in lake circles. Since 1892 he has been captain of the United States lighthouse tender Dahlia.

Captain Hubbard was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1866, a son of Henry S. and Kittie Hubbard. His father is a native of Jackson, Mich., and is by occupation a railroad man, now in the employ of the Lake Shore road at Toledo. The mother of our subject is a native of Ireland. Our subject was reared and educated in Cleveland and Toledo, and when he had arrived at the age of sixteen years entered upon his lake career. He first sailed out of Toledo in 1882 on the steambarge A.L. Hopkins, owned by the Wabash Railroad Company. For four years he continued on this and other boats owned by this company, and while in their employ (1884) he was wrecked on the steambarge Morley, at Grand Marais, Lake Superior, and then for one season sailed on the Wallula. For several seasons after leaving the Wallula he sailed on the passenger boats between Toledo, Sandusky and Put-in-Bay Island, leaving there for the position he now holds, as master of the lighthouse tender Dahlia, having received his appointment in 1892.

Captain Hubbard became a member of the Shipmasters Association at Cleveland. He was admitted to the Toledo branch, of which he was secretary, and from that branch he was admitted to the Chicago branch. He was elected to the presidency of this branch in 1898, and is recognized as one of the earnest and foremost members of the order. He is a member of Covenant Lodge No. 526, F. & A. M., also of Corinthian Chapter, R.A.M., and of St. Bernard Commandery No. 35, the Eastern Star, and he is also connected with the K. of P. at Toledo.

At Chicago, in 1893, the Captain was married to Miss Clara Martin.

Volume I

This version of Volume II is based, with permission, on the work of the great volunteers at the Marine Captains Biographies site. To them goes the credit for reorganizing the content into some coherent order. The biographies in the original volume are in essentially random order.

Some of the transcription work was also done by Brendon Baillod, who maintains an excellent guide to Great Lakes Shipwreck Research.
