To the administrator,
I am aware that contents of my anticipated group of hubs should not be identical to something that I published (two years ago) on another website. What I want to publish here is a non-fiction book. It is my autobiography. This diary-based free online book was published at a university website. I am a retired faculty member (age 80) and I do not know how long this website will be available to me. With this in mind, I would like this historical resource be preserved at Hubpages.
I am tempted to post the URL here but this would not be appropriate. Please contact me via regular email, if necessary. Thank you in advance.
And I have another question. Would it be possible to automatically send potential earnings (if any, from advertisement), to a university scholarship fund, rather than to me personally?

This is not the correct place to contact the staff. You can do so directly (and privately) here.
It's also a good idea never to put your contact details or email address online as this leaves you open to a lot of spam or in rare cases, identity fraud.
It's understandable that you want to preserve your work, however Hubpages has a strict no duplicate content rule. That means that if you've published the item anywhere else on the internet, it's not allowed to be published here, unless the original work is taken down.
Your best options are to either
1. Contact the original site and see if they will take it down.
2. Copy the work onto your own site (a free site from blogger is easy to set up and use and duplicate content won't be an issue).
3. Copy the entirety of the work onto your computer in a word processing program and save it there. You could just keep it as a backup, print it out in book form or wait for the university to remove it so you can publish it at Hubpages.[/b]
As for the payments, they do not come directly from Hubpages (except for HP adverts). Adsense and Amazon pay you directly, so you'd need to take it up with them. Hubpages only pays through Paypal for its share of adverts, so you could simply get a paypal address for the fund.
You could consider publishing it as an Ebook on Smashwords or Amazon, or both, and arranging for the payment on any sales to go to the beneficiary you have stated. This way it would remain published until such time as you chose to have it unpublished (if you ever did). Of course this means you would need to charge some kind of a price for it, but this can be as low as you wish it to be. Sandy Spider here on Hubpages can format books ready for being sold as an ebook, and she only charges a small fee for the service.

One of my articles is waiting to have an editor approve it. I re-worked it according to their recommendations, but I have not yet had anyone approve this and republish it.
