Biography of Henry Agnew Bubb (1907-1989)
Bubb started at Capitol Federal in 1926 as a clerk. By 1941 he was elected president, and in 1950 he was elected chairman of the board, positions which he held until his death in 1989. Under his leadership the business grew to be one of the largest financial institutions in Kansas. He served in various capacities on several advisory committees to the U.S. Senate due to his work with Capitol Federal, as well as on the U.S. Department of Treasury's advisory committee for the savings and loan industry.
Long active in Republican Party politics, Bubb was president of the Young Republican Federation, the National Organization of Young Republican Clubs, and a delegate to the Republican National Convention of 1940, at which he supported Wendell Wilkie for the presidental nomination. Later he was chairman of the National Citizens for Reagan Committee.
Bubb was named Distinguished Kansan of the Year in 1972 by the Native Sons and Daughters of Kansas, and in 1993 he was inducted into the Kansas Business Hall of Fame.
