One of nine children born to George and Martha Hubbard on January 15, 1866 in Georgetown, Michigan, Alice Hubbard would eventually move to Vancouver, Washington in 1901 and become a key person in the early Vancouver public education system. She was a teacher for many years at Central School and then became principal of that same school for 15 years, which was located on the site of the present Clark County Courthouse. She was also the main supervisor of the Vancouver city schools for many years. A deed dated September 12, 1925 shows the transfer of property at 400 W. 11th Street from the heirs of Rebecca A. Brown to Alice Hubbard. Miss Hubbard died in the house April 3, 1935. Her obituary below was taken from the Columbian, dated April 4, 1935.
