Wright Brothers Legacy Archived At Wright State University

Pulitzer Prize winning author, David McCullough, has written a new book about the Wright Brothers – it’s a window into the world of the two young men who gave mankind one of it’s greatest achievements – flight.

McCullough was featured on this week's Book Nook with Vic Mickunas, but we wanted to take a look at the Wright Brothers' legacy in the Miami Valley. To do that, we spoke with Dawne Dewey at Wright State University – home to the largest collection of Wright Brothers artifacts in the world. In the following interview, Dewey, who is the head of special collections, tells us about the collection's history.

And take a look at the some of the items in the collection in our slide show.
