Lawrence Goldstone talked about his book, Birdmen: The Wright Brothers, Glenn Curtiss, and the Battle to Control the Skies, in which he recounts the competition between the Wright brothers and Glenn Curtiss to be the predominant name in manned flight. In his book, the author recalls Orville and Wilbur Wright’s plans to monopolize the early aviation business via patent law and rebuke all competitors; a goal that was never realized due to the brothers' lack of technological improvements on their original patents. Lawrence Goldstone spoke at the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton, New York. close
