Long Memory of the Wrights

In 1913, a year after Wilbur died, Bishop Milton Wright made this entry in his diary: "Dr. Oliver Cook Haugh was electrocuted in Columbus, Ohio...He killed his father and mother and brother November 4, 1905, and set fire to the house to conceal the crime..." Oliver Cook Haugh had been the young man who struck Wilbur in the face with a shinny stick in 1886.
