History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

H B. Hough (Columbia University School of Journalism, B.Litt. 1918) and his wife, Elizabeth Bowie Hough, 1894-1965 (Columbia University School of Journalism, B.Litt. 1919), were co-owners, publishers, and editors of the Vineyard Gazette (Martha's Vineyard, MA) from 1920 until 1965. H.B. Hough was the author of many books of essays on Martha's Vineyard and on editing a country newspaper, as well as the author of short stories and magazine articles. The Houghs sold the Vineyard Gazette to James Reston in 1965, although H.B. Hough continued editing and writing for the weekly journal until 1983. He was married in 1979 to Edith Graham Blake and died in 1985.
