Grandnephew Milton Was Accomplished Artist
Milton Wright, Jr., Wilbur and Orville's grandnephew, passed
away in Dayton over the weekend of apparent pneumonia. An
accomplished artist in his own right, Milton was 84.
Born to Anne Grosvenor and Milton Wright in 1920, Milton Junior
obtained a degree in fine arts at Miami University, Oxford. He flew
in the Army Air Corps during World War II and later remained in
Paris to further his art career.
"Paris was the place he loved, but he loved Brooklyn and New
York City, too," his nephew, Stephen Wright, told the Dayton Daily
Milton was acquainted with his famous Uncle Orville until the
aviation pioneer's death in 1948. He took relish in recounting a
college visit from Orville. Seems Orville took issue with something
in an aviation textbook, so he scribbled some notes on the tome.
Later, a professor took a look at the margin notes and demanded of
Milton, "Who says this?"
"Orville Wright says," Milton replied, according to the Dayton
Daily News account.
According to Milton's wishes, the family plans no funeral.
