Special presentation at DAR meeting
Don Wright of New London presented the program “Experiences of a U-2 Pilot” to the members and guests of the Mercy Hathaway White Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution at their meeting July 9 at the Tracy Memorial Library in New London. Wright is the husband of the chapter’s librarian, Polly Wright. He spoke about the history of planes and of his missions as a pilot.
