Biographical / Historical
Resigning his position with the government at the Arsenal, Mr. Huebinger entered the photograph business in Davenport with his brother, Adam Huebinger, following the latter's arrival in this country from Germany.
The photograph work was not altogether to his liking and he resumed the map making business under the name of the North American Publishing company with headquarters in Davenport. He operated in Davenport, Des Moines, Waterloo and Peoria. The name of the corporation was later changed to M. Huebinger & Co., map makers. The office was moved from Davenport to Peoria some four or five years ago when Mr. Huebinger and his family took up their residence in the latter city.
Mr. Huebinger was commissioned to prepare maps of the city of Davenport and the state of Iowa for exhibiting at the World's Fair held in Chicago in 1898. He has prepared and published hundreds of atlas books, plats, record books and maps on cities and counties in Iowa and Illinois.
