Katharine Wright may have been the younger sister of Wilbur and Orville Wright, inventors of powered flight, but she was a remarkable woman in her own right. Born into a family with traditional values, but forward thinking beliefs about women's rights and education, Katharine lived a life full of contradiction between the reality of the role of women in the age she lived in and the life she might have entered under different circumstances. Dawne Dewey, Head of Special Collections and Archives for the Wright State University Libraries will share Katharine's story through photographs and passages from Katharine's letters.
