InfoOrville Liscum Hubbard was the mayor of Dearborn, Michigan for 36 years from 1942-1978. Sometimes referred to as the "Dictator of Dearborn," Hubbard was the most outspoken segregationist north of the Mason-Dixon line. During his administration, non-whites were aggressively discouraged from residing in Dearborn, and Hubbard's longstanding campaign to "Keep Dearborn Clean" was widely understood to mean: "Keep Dearborn White." Hubbard is also remembered as an old-school political boss who delivered a wide range of city services to his consituents, including the construction of a 626-acre rustic camp outside the city and the purchase of an eight-story senior citizen tower in Florida, all for use by Dearborn residents.
