#397 - Wright Brothers Program Estimate: $400+

The Wright Brothers' triumphant return to Dayton

Complete program for the "Wright Brothers Home-coming To the Gem City," held in Dayton, Ohio, on June 17-18, 1909, 6 x 8.75, published by Kerr-Geyer-Tyroler. Program contains a 'guide to Dayton' with many advertisements and information about the city in general, as well as images of the various members of the Wright family, their planes, and their factory. The last few pages contain a schedule of events for the homecoming celebration and a brief article about the history of the brothers. In very good condition, with overall creases, tear to back cover, and scrapbook page affixed to back cover. In June 1909, the brothers returned to their hometown of Dayton, where they were greeted with parades, receptions, and fireworks, and received medals from Congress, the state of Ohio, and the city. A rare program from one of these many events.
