Biographical / Historical

Charles J. Hubbard (1922-1989) worked as an architect in Vermont. He studied at Harvard College and Harvard Architectural School, graduating in 1953. He married Oda Waller, also an architect. Both worked for the architecture firm of Freeman-French-Freeman. Charles joined the firm of Barr and Linde in 1959, thus creating Barr, Linde, and Hubbard, Architects of Essex Junction, VT. J. Henderson Barr and William Hubbard were associated with Eero Saarinen and moved from Michigan to Vermont in about 1956. The firm lasted until 1964, leaving Linde-Hubbard Associates. Linde-Hubbard joined with Freeman-French-Freeman to form Horizons Inc. which contracted with the City of Burlington for the Champlain Street Urban Renewal Project of 1966. Linde died in 1968 and the firm became known as Burlington Associates which lasted until 1975.
