Arthur Hubbard

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Arthur J. Hubbard was born on the Tohono O’odham Nation in Topawa, Arizona Territory just three weeks before Arizona became a state.  He grew up in Ganado, Arizona.  He was a trombone player and singer.  He studied at the University of Arizona. In 1935, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps.

During WWII, he trained over 200 men to transmit coded messages in the Navajo language. After being discharged in 1945, the Governor Jack Williams appointed him the Director of Indian Development for the District of Arizona.  He also worked as a water rights advisor and taught the Navajo culture and language at Arizona State University.  He was inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame and the Arizona Democratic Party Hall of Fame.  He died in 2014, he was 102 years young.

What you may not know about Arthur is that he was elected to the Arizona State Legislature, making him the first Native American Senator for Arizona.

Good morning James,

I read the book on the "Navaho Code" and they were an important part of WWII.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

An amazing man, James... and one totally deserving of all the accolades and to be first to serve in Arizona's State Legislature.

This is something that stuck with me from my school days James Dray . Somthing similar was how the RailRoad radio network flew under the intelligence of German spies and was very helpful to the USA and it's allies.

What a great man who served not only the citizens of his tribe, the people of Arizona but all of us as a veteran of the armed forces.

Happy Sunday James Dray
