Hughes: The Private Diaries, Memos and Letters
Howard Hughes was a true American original: legendary lover, record-setting aviator, award-winning film producer, talented inventor, ultimate eccentric, and, for much of his lifetime, the richest man in the United States. His desire for privacy was so fierce and his isolation so complete that even now, twenty-five years after his death, inaccurate stories continue to circulate, and many have been published as fact.

Howard Hughes And His Flying Boat
Howard Hughes And His Flying Boat
The real story of Howard Hughes, aviator, innovative and visionary inventor and designer, has not heretofore been told. It is easy to see why. While he lived, it was difficult to write the biography of a billionaire who adamantly opposed the publication of anything about him. Would-be biographers were persuaded or forced to desist. Some were offered lucrative positions and disappeared into the ranks of the Hughes organizations never to be heard from again. Hughes employees were forbidden to talk about their boss. In 1965, Hughes concocted a new weapon to combat his would-be biographers -- Rosemont Enterprises, Inc., to whom he granted the exclusive right to use (publish, write, etc.) the name, personality, likeness, biography, life story, and incidents relating thereto of Howard R. Hughes. Even after Random House pulled the fangs of Rosemont in a hard-fought and celebrated court case, and even after Hughes's death, vestiges of the old security barriers remained. Being close mouthed had become a habit in the Hughes organizations. In Howard Hughes And His Flyng Boat, for the first time, large numbers of former Hughes employees and close associates talk about their famous boss. Here are behind-the-scenes stories that lift the veils of secrecy and controversy that have surrounded Hughes and his works during his lifetime. This is more than the story of the world's largest airplane. It is the story of Hughes the aviator and designer of unusual airplanes during a fascinating era in aviation history. It is the story of his life before he became the wheeler-dealer of Las Vegas, of the airplane crashes that changed the course of his life, of his mysterious "disappearance" for nine months, and of his struggle to vindicate himself and his works during the Senate investigation of his wartime contracts. In addition to the first-hand reminiscences of many who knew and worked for Howard Hughes, this book is based on previously unpublished documentary material. Was Hughes really a brilliant designer and builder of airplanes or did he just have the money to hire others who were? What kind of a pilot was he, really? These are the kinds of questions answered in Howard Hughes And His Flying Boat.

Empire: The Life, Legend, and Madness of Howard Hughes
Empire: The Life, Legend, and Madness of Howard Hughes
Whether he was courting public attention in the roles of aviator, playboy and entrepreneur, or shunning it as a recluse, Howard Hughes commanded headlines throughout his career. Yet the image of his life, his power and his business empire that caught the public imagination was almost completely false. Hughes s fortune actually came from his father s tool company and, later, from the Hughes Aircraft Company, yet these flourished simply because Hughes was prevented from interfering in their workings. In fact, Hughes was a disastrous businessman - no company under his control ever built a successful aircraft, he nearly destroyed TWA and completely destroyed a major film studio, and even his gambling empire in Las Vegas was crippled by corruption. His personal life was even more disastrous - he feared, rightly, that he was mad and spent most of his fortune and the last 18 years of his life trying to prevent anyone finding out. He spent his time naked, eating little, addicted to drugs and tranquillisers, a physical wreck, and died surrounded by men who nurtured his madness for their own ends.

American Legends: The Life of Howard Hughes
American Legends: The Life of Howard Hughes
*Includes pictures *Includes Hughes' quotes *Includes a bibliography for further reading. “My father told me, never have partners." – Howard Hughes “I'm not a paranoid deranged millionaire.” – Howard Hughes Howard Hughes lived a life that was quintessentially American, and his personal history was so varied, improbable and extraordinary that he practically resembled a living folk hero. Hughes was barely in his 20s during America’s Roaring Twenties, but he already began to command the nation’s headlines as a multi-talented millionaire, and the varied pastimes that his talents and wealth afforded him made him nearly impossible to ignore. In the ‘20s and ‘30s, the most famous people in the country were generally gangsters, jazz musicians, inventors, baseball players, Hollywood stars or flying aces, and by the end of the ‘30s, the 35 year old Hughes was at least three and arguably four of those; perhaps learning to play jazz or hit home runs seemed greedy at that point. After receiving a handsome inheritance in his teens, Howard made himself into one of the world’s first billionaires by the time he was in middle age, so he clearly wasted no time. Already a tycoon at the age of 20, Hughes took no pleasure in rest or success, and his accomplishments were just as unique as the man himself. He made Oscar-nominated films while simultaneously becoming the fastest man on the planet by setting airspeed records in a plane of his own invention, but even as he became a national celebrity, he displayed little interest in other people. A consummate loner, he rarely interacted with the elite social circles to which he had access unless business necessitated it, instead surrounding himself with employees to carry out the practical matters of his empire, make his designs into reality, cobble together his film productions, and organize the disparate parts of his life according to his precise specifications. He was known to millions and managed a diverse empire but was a friend to no one. Perhaps not surprisingly, a heavy majority of Hughes’ social interactions involved romance. Hughes was one of the most notorious womanizers in Hollywood, romancing scores of forgettable starlets and silver screen icons alike, but most of his affairs also remained impersonal, to the extent that he remained an enigma even to his paramours. Despite the sharp intellect, vigor and dynamism that made his astonishing accomplishments possible, Hughes ultimately descended into madness, ravaged by physical and psychological maladies that left him a caricature of what he had been at the zenith of his feats. Fittingly, the catalyst for his final decline was literally a fall, when one of his heralded airplanes tumbled out of the sky and brought him back down to Earth in a nearly fatal crash. The maverick billionaire was a famous figure in America for no less than half a century, but his true influence over the nation’s fate wasn’t known until long after his death. Despite the acrimonious way his unfulfilled airplane contracts were resolved at the end of World War II, while the Cold War raged, Howard continued to make a small fortune off government contracts by secretly supplying the Central Intelligence Agency with untold troves of spy gear. He also played a significant role in the most infamous political scandal of the century (Watergate), but even as the scandal transfixed the country, much like his own post-war Senate hearings a quarter century earlier, Hughes was never mentioned in the extensive investigation. American Legends: The Life of Howard Hughes chronicles the incredible life of one of America’s most eccentric geniuses. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Howard Hughes like never before.
