    • found: DeGH case files for his papers:(Although Hughes worked in a department titled "History and Sociology of Science," he did not practice either conventional sociology or history of science. As a founder and leading member of the Society for the History of Technology, he was instrumental in establishing the history of technology as an academic discipline completely distinct from the history of science and overturning the notion that technology is merely applied science.)
