Mina Hubbard was the wife of Leonidas Hubbard the American adventurer who travelled to
Labrador in 1903 in order to traverse the peninsula from North West River to Ungava Bay.
Leonidas Hubbard died from starvation before completing his trek and his wife then travelled
to Labrador in 1905 and completed the route herself. Although she has been credited as the first
"white traveller" to complete this trek, this distinction belongs to James MacLean, a Hudson's Bay Company trader who
first traversed from Fort Chimo, on Ungava Bay, to North West River and back in 1838.
