Papers of Carl Leavitt Hubbs, documenting his extensive research in ichthyology, zoology, natural history, conservation, taxonomy, archaeology and paleoclimatology. The collection includes voluminous photographic documentation, and some film and sound recordings.

Carl Leavitt Hubbs (1894-1979) was a American ichthyologist who spent the majority of his career at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.

Two excellent short biographies of Hubbs are available online.

Papers of Carl Leavitt Hubbs, documenting his extensive research in ichthyology, zoology, natural history, conservation, taxonomy, archaeology and paleoclimatology.

The Hubbs Papers include correspondence, field notes, manuscripts, photographs, newspaper clippings, data, audiovisual recordings, maps, and other files collected by Carl Hubbs and Laura Clark Hubbs, his wife and colleague. The files include a small amount of personal and family material such as letters, photographs, and genealogical information, but consist predominantly of material documenting Hubbs' work as a naturalist and ichthyologist. Most of the papers date between 1944 and 1979, the years that Hubbs worked at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Additional material dated 1929-1944 documents the years Hubbs spent at the Museum of Zoology at the University of Michigan.

The three most voluminous series consist of Hubbs's original research files, which he divided into three categories: Marine Life – Fishes, Marine Life – West Coast, and Subjects. These series contain detailed information on fish species and groups, including photographs, field data, research, manuscripts, and correspondence about specific fishes and other animals, in addition to research files on related topics.

The collection was built, maintained, and organized by both Carl and Laura Hubbs. He determined file structure and folder headings, and she did the filing, primarily by subject. The Hubbs Papers are a very large collection arranged in a complex manner that reflects this original organizational method. Please consult the descriptive notes at the beginning of each series for contextual information about the structure of the series, tips on searching, and where to find related materials.

Arranged in ten series: 1) BIOGRAPHICAL, 2) MARINE LIFE - FISHES, 3) MARINE LIFE - WEST COAST, 4) SUBJECT FILES, 5) CORRESPONDENCE, 6) WRITINGS AND TALKS, 7) PHOTOGRAPHS AND NEGATIVES, 8) SLIDES, 9) AUDIOVISUAL RECORDINGS, and 10) OVERSIZE.

Provenance

Carl Hubbs began discussing the disposition of his personal library with UC San Diego Librarian Melvin Voigt in late 1971. On June 20, 1979, Carl and Laura Hubbs signed a deed of gift donating all the Hubbs scientific books and papers to the University. This gift was accepted on behalf of the Regents of the University of California by Scripps Institution of Oceanography Director William A. Nierenberg on July 3, 1979. The Hubbs Library and personal papers were transferred by Betty Shor from Hubbs' office in the Marine Biology Building to the SIO Archives in early 1980. Laura Hubbs maintained an office in the SIO Archives from 1980 until 1986, and continued her active management of the collection. Over the years, she and her grown children located additional material at her home and added those files to the collection.

The bulk of the Carl L. Hubbs papers were acquired by the former SIO Archives in 1981. The collection was processed, respecting the original order of the material, by Deborah Day and Gisele English in 1991. They published their finding aid, "A guide to the Carl Leavitt Hubbs papers, 1920-1979" in the serial SIO Reference.

In 2021, Special Collections & Archives converted the 365-page PDF finding aid into an EAD (Encoded Archival Description) document. To do so, staff analyized the structure of the data in original finding aid and assigned series and sub-series levels to the inventory. Some material was emphasized in the new structure, and box numbers changed, but overall Hubbs's original organization of folders and folder titles remains intact. The new finding aid contains a Correspondence series (formerly the "Biographics" and "Publications" categories within the Subject Files), and also includes a detailed list of the photographic images. Photographs that had been removed from Hubbs's research files were returned to their original folders.

MARINE LIFE - FISHES

Scope and Content of Series

Series 2) MARINE LIFE - FISHES: An extensive series documenting Hubbs's scientific work focused on ichthyology, including: manuscripts, expedition reports, notes and research data, photographs, negatives, conference materials, and correspondence. In accordance with the original arrangement, materials Hubbs deemed "general" are placed at the beginning of each topical subseries; then materials are arranged by fish group number (and within that, alphabetically by order, family, genus or species); and then by "locality," or geographic area. When Hubbs had multiple files on one topic, he would arrange the folders in the following order: manuscripts, notes and data, photographs, references, newspaper clippings, and correspondence. Some topics have all of these file types represented; others are smaller or more sparsely documented and do not have folders of every type of material.

Fish groups are numbered according to the Alphabetical List of the Families of Fishes with their Group Numbers, after the Fish Division of the Museum of Zoology of the University of Michigan (rev. April 1989). In order to locate a file on a specific species, it is helpful to know its group number and geographic location. Species names reflect the taxonomic order of the 1970s and have not been updated.

This series was maintained by Hubbs to store and organize scientific research including field, laboratory, and written work on specific species. There is some overlap between content this this series and the MARINE LIFE - WEST COAST and SUBJECT FILE series. For example, some of the same fish groups can be found in both Marine Life series; and materials on conservation and preservation can be found in the SUBJECT FILES as well as in this series under the species name. Materials from Hubbs's research trips and expeditions can also be found in all three series.

Arranged in thirteen subseries: A) World, B) Western Hemisphere, C) Atlantic, D) Europe, E) Asiatic, F) Indo-Pacific, G) Pelagic Zone, H) Middle America Freshwater, I) South America Freshwater, J) Eastern North America Freshwater, K) Western North America Freshwater, L) Group 27, and M) Hybrid fishes.

A) World: Arranged by group number, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

B) Western Hemisphere: Arranged by group number, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries. Hubbs originally referred to this subseries as New World.

C) Atlantic: Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

D) Europe: A small selection of materials. Arranged by group number, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

E) Asiatic: Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

F) Indo-Pacific: A small selection of materials. Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

G) Pelagic Zone: Arranged by group number, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

H) Middle America Freshwater: Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

I) South America Freshwater: A small selection of materials. Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

J) Eastern North America Freshwater: Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

K) Western North America Freshwater: Arranged by group number and then locality, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

L) Group 27: A small selection of materials. Arranged taxonomically by the genus or species, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.

M) Hybrid fishes: Arranged by group number, with general materials at the beginning of the subseries.
