Born at Dulwich, England in 1904, he was educated at St. Olan and St. Saviour’s Grammar School, London. He came to Winnipeg in 1921 to be assistant organist at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. From 1943 until his death he was organist at St. Stephen’s Broadway United Church. Hubble conducted many choral groups and was a regular music festival adjudicator. He conducted the University of Manitoba Symphony Orchestra, was an examiner for the Faculty of Music, and lectured in the Faculty of Education, for which he received an honorary doctorate from the institution in 1967. He died at Winnipeg on 16 November 1969 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
