The Extraordinary Adventures of Colonel Hughes: an Exhibit at the Kansas Museum of History

Monday, July 17, 2017

James Clark Hughes

About The Event

The exhibit features the extraordinary story of one Kansas soldier, James Clark Hughes. As a member of the U.S. Army he photographed battlefields and towns in Europe in World War I. These photographs are made public for the first time. Colonel Hughes was captured at Bataan and recorded his daily survival as a Japanese Prisoner of War in World War II. The exhibit displays his photographs, his diary excerpts, and his many belongings from the wars that were later donated to this museum.
