These notebooks contain much of Jack Hughes’ documentary legacy. Although Hughes did not publish most of his fieldwork, he was a faithful and organized note taker. He was in the habit of typing up his hand-written and mentally noted observations as soon as he returned from the field as daily entries in field-journal style. Today Hughes notebooks are part of the archives of the Panhandle-Plains Historical Society at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon. Photo by Rolla Shaller.
