Welcome Home, Howard!

Description

Welcome Home, Howard!: or Whatever Became of the Daring Aviator? began as a web exhibit created by UNLV Special Collections to showcase its Howard Hughes collections in the wake of the publicity surrounding Martin Scorsese’s 2004 biopic about Howard Hughes, The Aviator. The exhibit was expanded into this comprehensive collection that features photographic images and portraits documenting the life of Howard Hughes, from an influential aviator and Hollywood film producer to an eccentric, reclusive hotel mogul in Las Vegas. Items were selected from two collections: The Howard Hughes Collection and the Hughes Electronics Collection.
