Its general contractor was Willard Hubbell, and this scrapbook is also a Hubbell family album. There are many prints of his daughter Rosemary's childhood; material on his father, Henry Salem Hubbell, well-known portrait painter; clippings on Willard Hubbell's fruit and vegetable farming under cloth greenhouses, and a 1946 brochure of the Riddle Inter-American Institute, when he was its Dean.
