Connecticut born Stewart M. Hub- .
bell, who is now serving his seventh
year on the Freeport Planning Board,
is a real New Englander as both his
mother's family and his father's fam-ily
had ancestors who fought in the
Stewart came to Freeport in 1945
from Pittsburgh but he had been no
stranger to Long Island's south shore
as he had lived in Oceanside from 1929
until 1941. But it wars Bristol, Con-necticut
where Stewart grew up and
thenattended Dean Academy in Frank-lin,
Mass. A mechanical designer for
the National Can Company for many
year s he joined the U.S. Steel Corpo-ration
nine years ago and is the Con-struction
Coordinator for the Univer-sal
Atlas Cement Division of that firm.
Mrs. Hubbell, the former Rita
Armell of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, and
Stewart met when she was visiting a
summer resort in Bristol, Connect-icut.
Poth of them agree'that despite
living in other areas of the east, they still prefer Freeport and both of
them hope the village will be able to maintain its present quiet, suburban
Past president of the Northeast Civic Association, Stewart joined
the Planning Board in 1954 and has been active on it ever since. He
lists his hobbies as boating,fishing, and wood working.
Stewart is very proud of his two sons Frank and Paul, both of whom
worked their way through college by playing in name bands. Paul with
Ralph Flanagan and Skitch Henderson and Frank with Preacher Rollo
and his Dixieland group at Miami. Both play club dates on weekends
but both have abandoned the music business for serious careers--Frank,
who lives at the Hubbell home at 183 No. Columbus Avenue works for
Hazeltine Electroncis and Paul, who lives in Merrick teaches at
Deer Park Junior High School. Paul and his wife, Susan have a boy and
Stewart points out that there are four generations of Hubbells in
the vicinity now as his father, Ernest, lives on Pine Street in Freeport.
Everyone knowing of the New England traditional traits of common
sense and dedication to liberty will be glad that this small piece of New
England has found itself a pleasant home in Freeport.

James J. Lyons of 29 Coolidge
Place, the superintendent of the Vill-a
ge I. Bi M. operation is an all Free-port
lad no matter how you look at it.
He moved to the Village from Brooklyn
when he was four years oldyvas grad-uated
from Holy Redeemer in 1936 and
then want on to Freeport High where
he was a member of the football team.
He then had to leave the Village
temporarily to take a Bachelor of Sci-ence
Degree in nearby Hof stfa College,
and during World War II he le ft tempo-
" ""rarily for a two and one half year'stirit
in the Army Air Corp. But his heart
was always in Freeport,in fact Jim met
Vera Piper in the Freeport Village of-fice,
a court ship followed and they were:
married in Freeport in ,1953.
Jim's Village career started
promptly after he was graduated from
Hofstra. He became a bookkeeper in
1950and, in 1959, was appointed Super- James J. Lyons
visor of the I. B. M. operations in the Supt. of Village I.B.M. Operation
Village. Proving that a satisfactory -
career in local municipal administration is possible for ambitious
young men; Jim prepared for the supervisory position by attending a
number of specialized schools and courses in electronic computing.
He attended the IBM Basic Machine Operators Course; the Functional
Wiring Principals Course; the Basic Wiring Course in 402-403 mach-ines
and the IBM Course at Endicott, New York.
Proud of the work the IBM unit does Jim is quick to explain how
such computers save a great deal of time and clerical expense for the
Village as wellas furnishing accurate records to guide the planners on
trends within the Village.
Jim is no stranger to municipal administrationas he is the son of
Harriet Lyons, well known to most Freeporters as the recently retired
lady who had served for many years as secretary to the Village Clerk.
Incidentally Jim lives within 2 blocks of the same house in which he
grew up in Freeport.
Vera and Jim are the proud parents of two little girls, Lorettawho
is 6 and Janet who is 5. If they want to keep up their record 100% it
will be their duty to make sure that these two little gals grow up and
marry Freeport boys, but, as Jim points out, this is something you
can't quite plan on and something even the fabulous IBM computers can't
quite work out for you.
