Lucius Lee Hubbard (1849-1929) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was educated at Harvard, the University of Bonn, and Boston University Law School, where he received an LL.B. After settling in Cambridge and marrying in 1874, he returned to the University of Bonn, earning a Ph.D in geology. He practiced law in Cambridge and also pursued his interest in geology. Hubbard relocated to Houghton, Michigan and became a member of the Michigan Geological Survey in 1890, serving as its director from 1893 to 1899. Hubbard’s tours of the Maine woods began when he was a student at Harvard and continued until his removal to Michigan. His guide-books provide an excellent record of the region during the golden age of sporting in Maine.
