Chanute - Wright Memorial

Mr. Chanute moved to Chicago in 1889 and began working on solving "the problem of the ages" - heavier-than-air flight.

Chanute corresponded with men all over the world interested in flight. He gathered all the information he could find, looking into records of experiments going back 300 years.

He devoted his full time to flight until his death.
