Description

Bishop Milton Wright, father of Wilbur and Orville Wright, regularly recorded entries in his diary from 1857 until his death in 1917. This diary’s entries begin on January 1881 and continue until December 1881. Wright records a variety of information regarding his travels, family history, and expenditures. Of particular note, this diary includes a record of Wright being defeated in an election for bishop and Wilbur Wright completing high school, which the researcher might find of interest.
