Special Collections and Archives

Special Collections and Archives (SC&A) collects, preserves, and makes available primary sources on the history of aviation, local and regional history, and the history of Wright State University. Outreach programs include exhibits, presentations, tours, conferences, class orientations, and online access to collections. SC&A is home to the largest Wright Brothers Collection in the world, the Dayton Daily News Archive, and hundreds of other collections documenting the history of aviation worldwide, and the people, events, and landscape of the city of Dayton and the Miami Valley. SC&A is also a learning laboratory for WSU's Public History Graduate Program.
