Edwin Hubble up a tree with six young people from New Albany and Louisville. My own great-aunt and grandmother, Roe and Lydia Hale, are perched on the left, and my two great-uncles, Earl and Davis Hale, occupy the branch on the right. Earl Hale was one of Hubble's mathematics students at New Albany High School. The tree stood on Silver Hills outside the home of John N. Roberts, the father of photographer Jack Roberts and the two girls.
