Collection consists primarily of transcripts of radio program speeches by Judge Sarah T. Hughes and correspondence between Hughes and Gwen Graul, clerk of the 14th District Court of Texas and later secretary of Federal Judge Hughes. Also included are clippings, publications, and related printed materials.

Radio transcripts are typed radio program scripts for Judge Hughes’s weekly speeches on WRR in Dallas, from April to November, 1945. On the radio programs, Judge Hughes discussed significant issues of the day, including the formation of the United Nations; the close of World War II; and various state, national, and international events and political affairs. Correspondence consists of letters, aerograms, and postcards from Hughes to Graul (1965-1977), mostly documenting Hughes’s travels abroad to Europe and the South Pacific during Hughes’s term as a federal district judge and later as a retired senior federal judge.
