Because of these differences with the method of child rearing Howard went through a few schools. The mother chose the son to educate in prestigious private schools, and his father, on the contrary, looking for easier options, because in Spartan conditions easier to temper male character.
The young family lived in prosperity, because the head of the family, Howard Hughes, Sr., was the founder of Hughes Tool Company engaged in the production of drilling equipment.

A year Hughes got married and moved with his wife to California to flourish in the field of cinema. Two years later, Howard bought a large production company. 22-year-old boy became an independent agent who is independently engaged in the production and manufacture of paintings.
