Researchers, Scholars: How many books have you bought this week?
This is Ella Rice Hughes, of the Texas Rice family, founders of Rice University and the first wife of Howard Hughes. The biographies conclude that it
was a marriage of convenience - for Howard
- who wanted this marriage for personal reasons other than love.
By all accounts the
relationship was cold and the historical record shows that it was childless.
Howard needed a respectable wife who came with a respectable, monied Texas family, because his intention was to spend every dollar of his inheritance
from ToolCo in Hollywood... partying.... partying... playing golf and buying influence.
The two books I bought this week were:
"FIASCO" by Jack Anderson (1983), The real story behind the disastrous worldwide energy crisis - Richard Nixon's "OILGATE".
"The Times We Had" by Marion Davies (forward by Orson Welles) (1975) - The unofficial empress of Hollywood in it's glittering era! The lifetime
mistress of one of America's mightiest men!
