Biography of Charles Hubbell

Charles Hubbell was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1899 and quickly became interested in aviation. He was an avid model plane builder and by the time he had graduated high school he had constructed a man sized glider. He attended and graduated the Cleveland School of Art in 1923 and gained his pilots license in 1925.

Hubbell worked as a commercial artist in Cleveland for several years and painted airplanes in his spare time until he was contracted by the Thompson Company to begin producing paintings for their yearly calendar using the winners of the annual Thompson races. The first calendar was produced in 1937. Hubbell would continue to paint for the calendar until 1969 when he retired.

Scope and Content

The Hubbell collection consists of four oversized folders. Each folder contains poster sized reprints of Hubbell's paintings for the Thompson calendar as well as several other posters that contain histories of flight written by Hubbell and produced by the Thompson Company. A complete list of each poster and its location in the folders can be found below. The date range of the collection spans 1941 to 1961.
