About Margaret Carson Hubbard (1897-1989)

Margaret Carson Hubbard was born in Clinton, Iowa on July 27, 1897. After graduating from Vassar College in 1919, she worked in advertising in New York City. She accompanied her husband Wynant, a geologist, to Northern Rhodesia in 1922 to capture animals for zoos. This was the beginning of her lifelong interest in Africa, a source of many adventures. After her divorce, she returned to Africa in 1936 to film a documentary, the first of a number of trips to make films or to develop research material for her books or articles on Africa. During World War II, Mrs. Hubbard was employed by the United States War Department African section as an analyst. After the war, she was Vice Consul in the Auxiliary Foreign Service in Pretoria in 1946-47. From the 1930s through the late 1960s, she wrote several books and articles on Africa for such publications as Atlantic Monthly, Christian Science Monitor, and The Toronto Star. Mrs. Hubbard also produced three films about African life and wrote three books on Africa: No One To Blame (1934), African Gamble (1937), and Boss Chambale (1957). In 1977, she received an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from the University of New Hampshire in recognition of her “exploration and interpretation of African life, an effort begun more than 50 years ago” which has “given the American people and their government invaluable resources in gaining knowledge of that continent and its life”. She died in Burlington, Vermont on January 17, 1989.

About the Margaret Carson Hubbard Papers

The Margaret Carson Hubbard Papers consist of material reflecting the personal and professional life of Mrs. Hubbard, as well as publications and information regarding the continent of Africa. Most of these latter materials were published in Africa, and were collected by Mrs. Hubbard as resource material for her writings. Papers relating to her relatively brief experience in military intelligence are found in various places within the African material, and are marked “Intelligence Reports.” The collection encompasses a wide variety of media, from personal notes and correspondence to publications, maps, photographic, and audio materials. The collection is particularly helpful as a witness to the changing face of Africa, from the late 1920s through the turbulent 1960s.

3 Responses to “Guide to the Margaret Carson Hubbard Papers, 1925-1976”

  1. Belinda E. Perry Says:

    I was overjoyed to find such a wealth of information about Margaret Hubbard. In the fities and sixties, she was a good friend to my mother, Margaret Perry Luckey, and I remember clearly coming home from school to find Margaret there, telling Mother that someone had contacted her about transferring her African films onto less flamable, more modern film. She was delighted. It’s a great pleasure to see this treasure of a woman being honored for her courage, intelligence and lively humor.

  2. Johannes van der Weijden Says:

    Mrs Carson Hubbard was married with Wynant D. Hubbard. He made (with her?) the film Untamed Africa. You write about Mrs Carson Hubbard that she made three films about African Life. Do you know the Titles of these films and are there nay copies of these films available? I support my old school in Namwala which is in the area where she lived for about 5 years. Thank you for your help. Johannes van der Weijden

  3. Roland Goodbody Says:

    I find references to two of Margaret Hubbard’s films “Liebalala (Sweetheart) (1935) and Gold” in an article by Andrew D. Roberts of the University of London entitled “Africa on Film to 1940″ in a journal called History in Africa, Vol. 14, (1987), pp. 189-227. I haven’t yet discovered the name of the third film.

    Roberts says Gold is apparently in the NFA, which I assume stands for the National Film Archive. However, no such animal seems to exist in the USA, unless it has been subsumed into the National Archives in Washington, D.C. (you’ll need to contact mopix@nara.gov to determine whether the film is in their holdings). Or it might possibly have been (though this is less likely) the National Film Archive in the UK (now called the National Film and Television Archive).

    Liebalala is (or was), according to a review by Max Gluckman at the University of Manchester in the UK that appeared in the Audiovisual Reviews section of American Anthropologist 1975, available at the California Extension Media Center, 2000 Center Street, Berkeley, CA 94704 (E-mail: espm.berkeley.edu Telephone: (510) 642-0460).
