Photographs made or collected by William E. Hughes during his travels in the United States, Greenland, Japan, Grenada, Trinidad, Barbados, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, St. Croix, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Cuba, Venezuela, France, Brazil, Costa Rica, Yugoslavia, Greece, and Turkey. They document the landscapes, churches, public buildings, parks, statues, artisans, markets, and city streets of these locations. Films and some photographs depict Hughes's family and trips to the Grand Canyon; Hawaii; Maine; New York; New Brunswick in Canada; and Washington, D. C. A scrapbook in the collection contains newspaper clippings relating to the 1891 Peary expedition to Greenland and a few letters accompany the photographs.

Lantern slides of Japan appear to be commercially made and hand-tinted, and slides relating to the Peary Expedition may have been made by Dr. Benjamin Sharpe, another scientist on the expedition.
Biographical/Historical note:
William E. Hughes (1857-1944) was a Philadelphia physician who accompanied Robert E. Peary on the first part of his expedition to Greenland in 1891. He received both his MD and PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1880.
