THE UNIVERSITY'S NEW REGENT
Lucius Lee Hubbard, the new Regent of the University of Michigan, appointed by Governor Osborn to take the place he himself left vacant, was born at Cincinnati, Ohio, August 7, 1849, the son of Lucius Virgilius Hubbard and Annie Elizabeth Lee Hubbard. He was graduated from Harvard in 1872, receiving the degree of LL.D. from the Boston Law School in 1875. He also pursued post gradu ate studies at the University of Bonn, Germany, receiving there the de grees of A.M. and Ph.D. He was married September 29, 1875, to Fran ces Johnson Lambard, at Augusta, Maine.
Regent Hubbard has been instructor in mineralogy at the State Mining School at Houghton, was as sistant state geologist of Michigan from 1891 to 1893, was state geologist from 1893 to 1899, and since that time has been connected with several of the copper mining companies of the Lake Superior region in the capacity of consulting geologist and general man- ager. He has been very successful in predicting the location of copper veins, and this success has given him high standing with the copper men of the Upper Peninsula.
Besides various scientific papers, the new Regent is the author of "Hub- bard's Guide to Moosehead Lake and Northern Maine" and "Woods and Lakes of Maine." He is a member of the American Institute of Mining En gineers and of the Geological Society of America. His name appears in the two national biographical dictionaries, American Men of Science and Who's Who in America.
Dr. Hubbard will bring to his office in the University not only the benefits of his knowledge of affairs, but also a broad sympathy for the intellectual life, and a thorough understanding of the aims of higher education and research.
