Archives hosts WSU Foundation Event & Dawne receives a Tip of the Hat

We were closed on the morning of Monday, November 18, in order to host a special event for the Wright State University Foundation.

During the event, WSU President David Hopkins presented two of his special “Tip of the Hat” awards. One was presented to Amanda Wright Lane, great-grandniece of the Wright Brothers and a longtime friends and supporter of Special Collections & Archives. The other was presented to Dawne Dewey, Head of Special Collections & Archives.
