A Year with Robert Earl Hughes

One of the many tributes to Robert Earl Hughes that did not fit into his biography was a unique piece of Hughesian memorabilia from 1982. Produced by Enoch Ham as an advertisement for his Fishhook "Mall" (a humorous title to anyone who has been in the one room general store), it was a low-budget calender for that year. It featured one of the photographs Hughes used to sell at his appearances in his last two years...the same image later utilized for the nice tribute-stone now in Fishhook, Illinois. I was blessed to have been given a copy of this calender when I spoke on Robert Earl in Pittsfield, Illinois.
