Join us for Archives Fridays: The Wright Brothers: More Than Airplanes on Nov. 20

Please join us for this month’s “Archives Fridays” presentation:

The Wright Brothers: More Than Airplanes
Friday, November 20
12-1 p.m.
Dunbar Library 315

Stories about the Wright Brothers and their aviation accomplishments abound, but materials in the Wright Brothers Collection reveal untold stories about their lives beyond airplanes. Come hear some little known tales!

This free event is open to anyone – faculty, staff, students, and the public. No advance registration is necessary. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch.

This presentation is part of our “Archives Fridays” brown bag lunch series, which continues throughout the academic year. All sessions will be on Fridays and will be discuss an archives-related topic, hence the name: “Archives Fridays.” Each brown bag talk will start with a presentation by one of our archivists, and there will be time for questions and discussion afterwards.

For additional dates and topics, please see our blog post announcing the series or the University Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives event calendar.

We hope to see you there!
