Park staff have conducted oral history interviews since 1995 to document the lives of the Wright brothers and Paul Laurence Dunbar, the neighborhoods and historic structures related to their careers, and the creation, development, and administration of Dayton's national park. This webpage is dedicated to providing public access to these sources for research and educational purposes.
All interview documents are in PDF format, file sizes listed next to names
