Henry Allen Huber (November 6, 1869 – January 31, 1933) was a Wisconsin politician. He was born in Evergreen, Pennsylvania, in 1869, but moved to Pleasant Springs, Wisconsin, with his parents at the age of ten. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1892 and set up a law practice in Stoughton. He was city attorney for Stoughton, Wisconsin, and served on the Dane County Board of Supervisors. He served as a Republican in the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1905 until 1906, and in the Wisconsin State Senate from 1913 until 1924.

During his time as a senator, he gained national recognition for writing the Huber Law, which allowed county prisoners to be employed during the day and launched the concept of the prison work release program; he is also known for introducing landmark unemployment legislation.[citation needed] He later served four terms as the 25th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, from 1925 until 1933, under four different governors.[1]


Huber died of a heart ailment, at Madison General Hospital, Madison, Wisconsin, on January 31, 1933, aged 63.[2]
