Historical Sketch Read At The Hoover Reunion August 21,1915. Read by Edward D. Kimes---Historian. As most of us know, the name Hoover was originally Huber, and Huber--Says Mr.Henry Hoover of the National Hoover Family Association, quoting Prof. Kuhns-is derived from an old German word "hutre",meaning the owner of a small tract of land, which makes the word Huber equivalent to farmer.
