Welcome Home Howard, Or Whatever Became of the Daring Aviator?

Who was Howard Hughes? He was a man who wore many hats during his lifetime, and after his death, a number of biographies appeared that claimed to know the "real" Hughes. One man did have a particular insight into Howard Hughes' life, and his name was Dick Hannah. Hannah served as the official spokesman for Hughes for several decades, and in 1996, the University of Nevada-Las Vegas acquired his papers. The collection contained hundreds of official photographs of Hughes, and it "also documents what interested Hughes". This digital exhibition offers a few highlights from this remarkable collection, and each section contains a narrative essay, complemented with photographs, diagrams, and other pieces of ephemera. The fifteen sections include "Around the World", "Howard Hughes, Aviator", and "The Flying Boat". Perhaps one of the most compelling sections is "Hughes Portraits", as it provides seventeen different images of Hughes at different times in his life. [KMG]
