Here are a few possibilities:

data(singer, package = "lattice")

## using traditional graphics

singer.split <- with(singer, split(height, voice.part))
par(mfrow = c(2, 4))
for (i in names(singer.split))
    hist(singer.split[[i]], main = i, xlab = "height")

## using lattice

histogram(~height | voice.part, singer)

## using ggplot2

qplot(height, data = singer, geom = "histogram", facets = voice.part ~ .)
