Description: This image is of Bela Hubbard who is considered one of the founders of Michigan Agricultural College (now MSU). Hubbard was an educational pioneer, advocating for a broadening of courses to allow for a more “enlightened liberal education.” Outside his involvement with Michigan State, Hubbard was a Detroit geologist. He owned a farm and would have been considered a naturalist. Hubbard enriched the Detroit community as well, and was one of forty original donors that established the Detroit Institute of Arts. Hubbard Hall is named for him.
