Bishop Milton Wright, father of Wilbur and Orville Wright, regularly recorded entries in his diary from 1857 until his death in 1917. This is a revised version of Wright's 1857 diary’s made by Wright, himself. His entries begin on January of 1857 and continues sporadically recording information until 1900. Wright records a variety of information regarding his travels, family history, and expenditures. Of particular note, this diary includes a record of his first sermon on August 23, 1857 which the researcher might find of interest. View the transcript of the Milton Wright diaries.
