Simon Lubin, son of David Lubin (1849-1919), was a labor and agricultural economist, social worker, and educator. He graduated from Harvard magna cum laude in 1903, after having studied economics and philosophy. As a businessman, he ran Weinstock and Lubin, Inc. As the president of the California State Immigration and Housing Commission (1913-1923), he worked to improve the conditions in agricultural labor camps, developed an educational program for aliens, mediated and investigated labor disputes, and prepared housing and social welfare legislation. He also was a member of the National Labor Board, and organized the Sacramento Regional Citizens' Council (founded in 1926), a civic association dedicated to working on economic problems. He also served as a Chief of the California State Bureau of Commerce and was a founder of the Pan American Institute of Reciprocal Trade.
