Milton Wright’s diary entry of March 10, 1917, states, “Scipio came. He weighs 16 pounds. He is a St. Bernard dog. He is a good-looking puppy.” Orville purchased the dog from a breeder in New Jersey for $75, and he soon became a member of the family. Katharine named him Scipio after the famous Roman general who had defeated Hannibal and thwarted an invasion of Rome. Orville loved his dog and took many photographs of him. What I especially liked about this historic photograph is the expression on Scipio’s face. It is the face of a dog who loves the photographer, his owner.
