Special Collections & Archives will be one of several Dayton area cultural institutions that will be featured on an upcoming episode of C-SPAN’s 2013 Cities Tour of BookTV & AmericanHistoryTV.
One of C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles arrived at the Dunbar Library on the morning of Tuesday, November 19:
This little red car brought C-SPAN’s Christy Hinton…and her video equipment!
Christy filmed a spread of materials from our world-renowned Wright Brothers Collection, while Dawne Dewey, Head of Special Collections & Archives, told stories about the Wright family and the collection.
The “Dayton” episode of the C-SPAN 2013 Cities Tour airs this weekend on BookTV (C-SPAN 2) on Saturday, December 21, at 12:00 noon, and on AmericanHistoryTV (C-SPAN 3) on Sunday, December 22, at 5:00 p.m. The Dayton episode will also be available online after the original air-date on the C-SPAN 2013 Cities Tour site.
The C-SPAN Cities Tour visited several other sites and organizations during its time in Dayton, including University of Dayton, the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Dayton History, and Dayton City Hall (to interview mayor Gary Leitzell).
