Book Used by Katharine Wright, "Medea," 1892

Summary

Milton and Susan Wright encouraged an interest in learning in their children Reuchlin, Lorin, Wilbur, Orville and Katharine -- though not necessarily in formal education. Katharine was the only Wright child to finish college, graduating from Oberlin in 1898. Neither Wilbur nor Orville finished high school, but they learned much from their father's extensive home library.
