Scope and Contents:
The US Army Signal Corps advertised for bids for a two-seat observation aircraft and in 1908 and 1909, the Wrights flew the Wright 1908 Military Flyer at official Army trials at Fort Myer, Virginia. On September 17, 1908, Orville Wright and Lieutenant Thomas Etholen Selfridge made a flight as a part of these trials. While in the air, a blade on the propeller broke and the aircraft fell from 75 feet up and landed on Wright and Selfridge. Both men sustained severe injuries. Wright broke a leg and several ribs, and Selfridge was taken off the field unconscious. Selfridge died shortly after the accident from his injuries and became powered flight's first fatality. The Army was to purchase the Wright (Co) Type A Military (Signal Corps No. 1) for $30,000 in 1909.

Descriptive Entry:
These papers consist principally of family correspondence, 1885-1891 and 1903-1914, in English and German; a small quantity of professional correspondence; and a journal of part of Knab's trip up the Amazon River in 1885-1886.
Historical Note:
Frederick Knab (1865-1918), born in Bavaria, emigrated to the United States in 1873 with his parents. He subsequently returned to Munich to study art for a time. Entomology was also one of Knab's early interests. Coupled with his artistic skill, this interest earned him a commission from Leland Ossian Howard to study the mosquitoes of New England as part of a larger study then in progress on the mosquitoes of North and Central America. In 1906 Knab joined the Bureau of Entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture, where he continued his studies of disease-bearing Diptera until his death.
