Kansas City's Unknown Engineer

Apr 22, 2016

You may not have heard of Octave Chanute before but, if you live in or around Kansas City, chances are you're affected by his work. Local historian Bill Nicks explains Chanute's lasting importance to aviation, and where you can still find evidence of his legacy in the metro.

Bill Nicks will tell Octave Chanute's story in first-person at the Central Library on Sunday, April 24, at 2 p.m. For more information, visit the Kansas City Public Library's website.
