by Mina Benson HubbardAs Anne Hart's biography shows, Mina Benson Hubbard's life (1870-1956) was an adventure of frequent reinvention. Raised on an Ontario pioneer farm, Mina Benson was a shy nurse in New York when she married Leonidas Hubbard, an ambitious American journalist. Following his death during his 1903 attempt to cross Labrador, the devoted housewife set out to complete his expedition. While in England to finish her now-famous book, she met and married Harold Ellis, the scion of a landed North Country family. Mina became an enthralling public speaker, part of intellectual London circles, and involved with women's suffrage and other burning issues of the day.
