This photo of Hubert was taken in 1946. In Hubert’s earlier years his name was Hal Smith, then Hal Silvers, later changed his name again to Hubert Castle as most know him by today. Hal Smith is his true name, but any good performer needs a strong name and Hubert Castle fit him well. He and my Dad were good friends as Hubert got his start on my Grandfather’s circus in the early 1920′s.
