100 years ago: Three students build airplane

January 4, 2010


From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 4, 1910: “Harry Elliott, Paul Elliott and Gilbert Smith, three university students, have constructed an aeroplane. All they lack now is an engine. The body is modeled after all the latest aircraft and they are confident their creation will fly well. … Other schools have their 1910 football schedules set but Kansas is lagging. The athletic board seems to be dragging its feet.”
