Own a piece of history. HOWARD HUGHES - AUTOGRAPH NOTE UNSIGNED [HOWARD HUGHES] An unknown writer informs Hughes that "George" has just arrived, and asks if they should call to cancel his substitute. Hughes pens a brief note say to call and inform him, and to plan for food at 5:30. A reclusive billionaire, Hughes lived in separate quarters (but in the same house) from his wife and was mostly confined to his bedroom, speaking to her and his staff almost entirely in notes and letters. Autograph note unsigned, 1 page, 8½x14 (front and verso).No place, no date, but circa 1964. Unknown hand: George is here at the house. Hughes pens several notes: "Have you phoned", "Then lets call + say not necessary hurry but figure food at 5:30". The dashing aviator and movie mogul had met Peters in 1946, when she had come to Hollywood as a prize for winning the Miss Ohio state title. Hughes was intrigued by Twentieth Century-Fox's rising star, who made her film debut in 1947.
Following 11 years of sporadic dating, the two were married in a small mining town outside of Las Vegas on January 12, 1957. Hughes, known for working odd hours into the night, preferred to relay his business and personal directives via memos and hand-written notes rather than the spoken word, and he would communicate with his wife in this same manner. They jotted notes about planned meetings, films, business and opinions in general.
Hughes lived at the fashionable address of 1001 Bel Aire. However, their marital arrangements included separate living quarters, and Jean often was required to make an appointment with Hughes' aides in order to see her husband.
By this time in their marriage, the couple was known to usually spend a half hour together after 11 p. Before retiring to their separate bedrooms. In November 1966, Howard Hughes confined himself to a hotel penthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1970, after having spent most of her married life with Hughes in separate accommodations, Jean Peters Hughes was granted a divorce.This item is in the category "Collectibles\Autographs\Historical".
