I researched the Colorado Springs City Directory from 1898 to 1902. Mr. Anton Hubner appears in the 1900 directory, page 209 and is listed as a Mach & Electrician, 632 E. Pikes Peak Ave. No listing for him in the 1898, 1901 or 1902 directories. I am still looking for a copy of the 1899 directory.

I found the 1899 directory. Neither Anton Hubner nor Nikola Tesla appear in it. They both appear in the 1900 directory.

I checked into US Census records and found the following: In the 1910 census, Anton Hubner lived in El Paso County (Colorado Springs is in El Paso County), Colorado. He was born in 1868 in Russia. He was 42 in 1910, meaning he was 31 when assisting Tesla in Colorado Springs in 1899. His wife was Euilza Hubner.
