Frank McKinney "Kin" Hubbard (1868-1930) was a journalist, humorist, and the creator of the Abe Martin character. Hubbard was born in Bellefontaine, Ohio but moved to Indiana in 1891 to work for the Indianapolis News as a police reporter and artist. Hubbard conceived the idea of the Abe Martin character while traveling around Indiana on a campaign train in 1904. The series would soon become syndicated and led to the publication of several collections of Abe Martin's sayings.
