Sewn in Memory: Scott Hubbard
Scott Hubbard was a Champaign County Sheriff’s deputy for 17 years. He was a graduate of Urbana High School and Parkland College. He died in Urbana, Illinois in 1992 at age 43. In the accompanying video, Jim Wuersch, a former Urbana police officer, remembers his good friend Scott.
These videos commemorate men who died from AIDS in central Illinois in the 1980s and 1990s as told through stories from their friends and family. They are produced by the University of Illinois Department of Journalism and Illinois Public Media as part of Sewn in Memory: AIDS Quilt Panels from Central Illinois, a community-curated exhibit created for the Spurlock Museum of World Cultures in 2021 in collaboration with the Greater Community AIDS Project of East Central Illinois (GCAP) and the Department of History at the University of Illinois.
