Last updated: 27.04.22
According to the Internet source given below, John Raymond Hubbell, also known as Raymond Hubbell, was an American writer, composer and lyricist. Today he is most remembered for the popular song, Poor Butterfly (1916).
He was born in Urbana, Ohio and studied music in Chicago forming a dance band. He was employed by Charles K. Harris Publishers as a staff arranger and pianist. He composed for a number of stage musicals until 1915 when he became musical director for the New York Hippodrome. He composed for the theater until 1923. According to his obituary, he thought his best song was The Ladder of Rose(1915).
His last Broadway work was the score for the musical Three Cheer (1928), starring Will Rogers. He retired to Miami, Florida shortly after. He was one of the founding members of ASCAP in 1914.
Of ragtime interest is his Down in Dixie
