Hughes, John (1930- )
Scope:
The John Hughes collection includes manuscripts, professional materials, and scrapbooks.

The collection includes a manuscript for Indonesian Upheaval (McKay, 1967); news analyses scripts for WBZ-TV (1962-64); scripts of news broadcasts from the Far East; and dispatches to The Christian Science Monitor from the Far East (1964-70).  

Professional materials consist of daily press briefings from the U.S. Department of State (1982-84), maintained during Hughes’s stint as spokesman for the department. All materials are photocopied.

Many of Hughes’s dispatches and columns are collected in scrapbooks, chronicling his career between 1955 and 1997. Dispatches to The Christian Science Monitor from Africa and Asia are well documented alongside the columns which Hughes contributed to the Monitor.
