As a youth in Chagrin Falls Schools, Charles Hubay made his rounds with a violin in his hand. Remembered for his compassion towards others as well as his immense talents, the brilliant young musician became a surgeon, professor, and medical researcher of special distinction. Graduated from the former Adelbert College and the medical school at Western Reserve University, he joined the full time faculty at University Hospitals in 1950 and remained there throughout his career. Dr. Hubay authored more than 150 research papers. His work included studies of organ transplantation and rejection, and the treatment of advanced breast cancer. He served as president of the Cleveland Surgical Society, Case Western Reserve University of Medicine Alumni Association, and the Central Surgical Association. He was a guest editor of the American Journal of Surgery. Dr. Hubay never forgot the inspiration provided by his music teachers, Albert Freeman and Zoe Long Fouts. He established for the Fouts-Freeman-Hubay Award, which is presented each year at Chagrin Falls High School to the outstanding senior in the field of music. Born in Chagrin Falls in 1918, Dr. Hubay died at home in South Russell in 1991.
