Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Hubbard Papers consist of notes and drafts for most of Hubbard's published and unpublished writings. His local history research is informed by a knowledge of economic factors that was unusual for the day. His papers possess additional importance in that Hubbard is probably the last historian to have interviewed Julia Weber, daughter of the founder of Stockton, Charles M. Weber III, the founder's grandson, and Louisa E. Vallejo de Emparan, the last surviving daughter of M. G. Vallejo.
Harry Dorris Hubbard (1889-1970) had an active, enquiring intellect, a fluent pen, and an unlimited gift for self-promotion. He was both a huckster and a self-taught local historian of some importance, whose work was produced (and remains in) virtual obscurity.
