Robert Hughes' widow, Maureen Hughes-Thompson, participated in an oral history with The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza on April 27, 2002. - Stephen Fagin, Curator
The night of the assassination, Hughes wrote a letter to his parents saying, "About five seconds after I quit taking pictures we heard the shots...".
Earlier scenes in the film show Hughes, his wife, Maureen, and others in family scenes in Dallas. Unfortunately, that section of film was removed at some point before the film was donated to the Museum and is now considered lost. It was not found with the other Hughes family home movie reels. The only known copy of those family scenes was an 8mm print made by the FBI soon after the assassination; that reel is now at the National Archives. - Gary Mack, Curator
