Wright Brothers’ First Flight in Peeps
April 4, 2011
History comes alive in many ways, and in this month through Easter Peeps. WSU Libraries submitted an entry of “Peeps’ First Flight” to the Ohio Historical Society’s first Ohio History-themed Peeps Diorama Contest. They asked for dioramas of famous scenes from Ohio’s history, and Wilbur and Orville Wright’s First Flight is the natural Dayton inspiration. The submitted photos show the First Flight from different angles than the actual First Flight photo. This was done to show the behind-the-scenes action of the historic event with its photographer and witnesses. Read more about the story and see photographs about Peeps in Flight.
