March is Women's History Month!
Today we are highlighting Collection 379, the Gerald J. Hubbell Collection.
Dr. Gerald Hubbell was a physician and teacher at the University Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. He was a former executive director of the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and a 1959 graduate of Southwestern Louisiana Institute (now UL Lafayette). Both, he and his wife, Geraldine Cormier Hubble, had been patrons of Acadiana arts and music since the early 1970s and founded or co-founded several groups, including Chorale Acadienne, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra’s Conservatory of Music, and Youth Orchestra.
The Gerald Hubble Collection is a collection of mostly choral and instrumental music performed by local, regional, and university ensembles and recorded by Dr. Hubble, primarily on open reel tape between 1977 and 1997, with some recordings preserved on Digital Audio Tape (DAT) from about 1994 to 2000.
