Howard Hughes: Footprints in the Desert Sand a Chautauqua presentation by Brian Kral
Friday, April 17, Noon - 1 p.m.
Lloyd George US Courthouse 333 Las Vegas Blvd. 89101 Jury Room


Admission: Free

For many Nevadans, the puzzle of Howard Hughes begins with a late-night arrival on a stretcher at the Desert Inn Hotel in 1966, and ends just as mysteriously four years later with his secret departure. Within that short time the elusive billionaire, film-producer and aviation pioneer never appeared in public—but he had purchased five Las Vegas hotels, a casino in Las Vegas and another in Reno, a television station, an air terminal, a regional airline, and thousands of acres of Nevada real estate. More importantly, he was credited with having legitimized corporate investment in the casino industry, which had long been associated with money laundering for the Mob. What many people don’t know, however, is that his involvement in Nevada began as early as the 1940s and continued into the 50s. In 1972, Hughes finally broke his personal silence with a press conference from a hotel in the Bahamas, to comment on a purported “autobiography” by Clifford Irving. This would be Hughes’ final comment on his life and achievements, and also on the persistent rumors about his strange appearance and obsessive behavior.
