101-year-old World War I draft registration card found in Ohio returned to family 

via the 5 Eyewitness News ABC television station (Minneapolis, MN) web site.

Hidden for 101 years inside the cover of a Bible was a World War I registration card belonging to Clem Clair Hubbard.

A Toledo, Ohio woman made the discovery after purchasing the Bible at a local sale knowing right away that she needed to return this card to the rightful family.

Librarians at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library helped track down the family by shifting through obituaries, doing research on the Hubbard family, and teaming up with the history and genealogy department at the library.

The research lead them to Hubbard's who lived in the same town in Ohio.

The public library has chosen to display their own collection of treasures that have been hidden away in the books on their shelves.

However, the librarians are simply glad the piece of the Hubbard's family heirloom has been returned.
