Fun Fact: Native born Texan Howard Hughes was an American aviator, engineer, industrialist, film producer and director, philanthropist, and one of the wealthiest people in the world. Hughes did not get his fortune from his movies or aviator skills, but rather from the inheritance from his father’s invention of the Hughes Drill Bit, which revolutionized the oil industry.
