Local historian, author releasing second edition of personal memoir

NORWICH – Local veteran and historian Archie Hubbard is in the final stages of releasing the second volume in a two-part autobiographical series that’s been in the works since he was a small child. At 96 years old, the author said writing the books has been a “labor of a lifetime.”



“Archie Hubbard’s Business Life in Upstate NY: Volume II” continues Hubbard’s recollections of Chenango County and its history, this time focusing on the hard-working family man’s time spent toiling on the county’s railroad – specifically the Lyon Brook Bridge – as well as the New York State gas line transfer station in Gilbertsville. The book also includes photographs and information on the various equipment he has owned and many of the other jobs he has performed over the years.
