Captured: The Extraordinary Adventures of Colonel Hughes

Eighty thousand Kansans served in World War I; 227,000 in World War II. We pay tribute to all Kansas soldiers by telling the story of Kansan James Clark Hughes. He served from 1917 to 1948 in the U.S. Army, and fought in both world wars. He left detailed records of his time in service; he photographed battlefields and towns in Europe; recorded his daily survival as a Japanese Prisoner of War; and saved many belongings from the wars later donated to this museum. In essence, he captured his life.
