Wright Brothers Collection
The Wright Brothers Collection is a collection of photographs documenting the invention
of the airplane, the lives of the Wright Family, and the Wrights' flying exhibitions
in Europe and the United States. The collection provides thorough coverage of the
Wrights' early inventive period documenting their early gliders and flight testing
in both North Carolina and Ohio. Much of it should show that Orville and Wilbur Wright
were technically excellent photographers who painstakingly documented their process
of invention. The content posted to date also provides a valuable record of their
home life, camp life, and the flora and fauna of the Outer Banks 100 year ago.
These photos are from The Wright Brothers Collection housed in Special Collections and Archives at the Wright State University Libraries, one of the most complete collections of Wright material in the world.
