When James Hubbell Jr. died recently at the age of 86, he left behind an exemplary record of success and service. He took part in the rebuilding of downtown Des Moines, became a member of the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame and served the community as a trustee for the Des Moines Art Center, among other civic duties.

And away from the public eye, he raised a family and presided over the rich Hubbell family trust until its dissolution in 1983. On that occasion, according to author William Friedricks, Frances Hubbell Ingham said in a speech to the family:

“Jim has led us in his gentle and modest way from a somewhat conservative view of our place in Des Moines to a broader awareness of our potentials and capabilities; and along with that a deeper sense of our responsibilities to the community. … With his patience and understanding, a strong sense of fairness, and the will to hang in, Jim has gained the one thing he had to have – our trust.”
