fyi - News for the Campus CommunityView all items »
Santa Clara alumnus and adjunct professor John Giddings ’91 wants to set the record straight: It was Santa Clara College (SCU) professor John Joseph Montgomery who was the first in the U.S. to successfully fly a heavier-than-air glider. Montgomery’s feat took place in 1884, 20 years before the more famous flight of the Wright Brothers. Giddings is now hoping to make Montgomery’s story into a full-length feature film.
