Chanute - Wright Memorial

Mr. Chanute's 1891 book "Progress in Flying Machines" made him the world's first aviation historian, but, more importantly, for the first time experimenters could read of work done before them and not waste time by repetition.

His 1896 biplane design was so successful that it underwent few changes during the next 50 years and was a model for the "Wright Flyer" at Kitty Hawk, N.C.
