Hubbell was one of the foremost commerical aviation artists in the U. With more than 500 paintings to his credit, a body of work that is an illustrated compendium of aviation history. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, he entered the Naval Air Service during World War I. Stationed in Buffalo, he redesigned airplanes at the Curtiss airplane factory. He received a pilot’s license in 1927. In 1934, Hubbell was commissioned by Fred Crawford, chairman of Thompson Products, to paint past winners of the Thompson Trophy Air Race. Thus began a long career as Thompson/TRW’s free-lance artist, for whom he produced an annual illustrated calendar from 1937 to 1972. Today many of his paintings are in the permanent collection of the Western Reserve Historical Society’s Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland.
