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 began on January 1905 and continue until December 1905. Wright records a variety of information regarding his travels, family history, and expenditures. Of particular note, this diary includes a record of the Wright Brothers' first flight with their 1905 machine at Huffman Prairie and Milton watches Wilbur fly, which the researcher might find of interest. This was also the year that Milton Wright retires as a bishop. View the transcript of the Milton Wright diaries.
