This is incredibly sad news, for he had so much to give. I would love to have seen his pottery. Nicholas used to spend hours researching fish behaviors not far from my home on Chena Hot Springs Road, just outside Fairbanks. He was well liked and respected, a truly gifted biologist.
I have included an article from the Fairbanks News Miner, written by my favorite Fairbanks reporter Dermot Cole. [URL=http://www.newsminer.com/news/2009/mar/23/nicholas-hughes-son-major-poets-emerged-prominent-/]
Somehow, my link isn't underlining, so I hope you can get to this page. You can go directly to the Fairbanks News Miner and there is a heading that takes you to the story.
