In Her Own Wright

4 EpisodesProduced by Harry HaskellWebsite

In Her Own Wright is a three-part podcast that tells the story of Katharine Wright, the little-known “Wright Sister” who was every bit as remarkable as her world-famous brothers, Wilbur and Orville.


Part 2: Katie and “The Boys”

Part 2, "Katie and 'The Boys,'" shows that Katharine Wright was an indispensable member of the Wright family team. After Wilbur's death in 1912, she was instrumental in helping Orville wind down and ultimately sell the Wright Company. In the process, she steered the surviving Wright Brother into his emeritus role as the elder statesman of American aviation. Dramatic readings from Katharine's letters are interwoven with the voices of scholars, historians, family members, and other interpreters, who offer their own illuminating perspectives on Katharine and her times.
