Biography

Hubert Stevens must be considered, with Billy Fiske and Stan Benham, one of the greatest bobsled drivers in American history. In addition to the 1932 Olympic gold medal, he won three North American and three national championships as a bobsledder. Stevens was a well-known athlete growing up in Lake Placid, as he played hockey and golf. He went to Renssellaer Polytech, obtained an engineering degree, and served as a machinist and pilot in World War I. After the war he helped run the family hotel in Lake Placid, but he also served as superintendent of the Whiteface Mountain Highway Authority and was chairman of the Whiteface Mountain Commission for improving ski conditions in the area.
