150 years ago today Wilbur Wright (1867-1912) was born on a farm near New Castle, Indiana. Take a moment to look skyward and, as you see an airplane pass over, wish Wilbur a happy 150th birthday. Enjoy a few photographs documenting Wilbur’s extraordinary 45 years of life. Additional photographs of Wilbur and the Wright family can be viewed here. You can learn more about the Wright Brothers by visiting Special Collections & Archives on the 4th floor of Dunbar Library.
