Howard R. Hughes, Jr.
Hughes began his business career at the age of nineteen by taking over his father’s business, Hughes Tool Company. Hughes parlayed this small business into a highly successful and well-regarded aircraft manufacturing operation. Through his efforts, Hughes created a billion dollar enterprise, and more importantly, produced several advances in aviation speed performance. His business success was extended to the movie industry where he successfully produced films, including Hell’s Angels, Scarface and The Outlaws.
