Some Things Just Take Time...
The First Flight Centennial organization told ANN that East
Carolina University's award-winning literary journal, the North
Carolina Literary Review, now features rare images from the
Wright brothers' 1911 glider experiments. These delicate cyanotypes
were owned by Alpheus Drinkwater, the telegrapher who announced the
Wright brothers' 1903 success to the world. Drinkwater's daughter,
Marguerite Drinkwater Booth, allowed these blue-toned prints (an
early method of photography) to be reproduced and published, for
the first time, by NCLR.
The special feature section shows how North Carolina and flight
have been linked since long before 1903 -- in an 18th century
German novel, in which the main character flies across the ocean
and lands in the area now called Winston-Salem -- to long after --
in Edgerton's novels, The Floatplane Notebooks and In
Memory of Junior.
The 1903 event itself features prominently throughout American
poetry, including a poem by Robert Frost called "Kitty Hawk."
