Katharine Wright

Henry J. Haskell, better known as Harry, took his meals at Katharine's rooming house. Like Margaret, he was the son of missionaries. Unlike her, he was intensely studious. Although he was Katharine's same age, he was two years ahead of her in his studies.

Harry Haskell, for example, proposed to one of Katharine's housemate's, Isabel Cunningham.
Harry Haskell started as a cub reporter with the Kansas City Star.
Their contact increased when Orville and Katharine began their feud with the Smithsonian and Harry supported them with editorials in the Kansas City Star . Then it increased again when both Harry and Katharine were invited to join the board of trustees for Oberlin College.
Harry was the first to realize where this was going and declared his feelings to Katharine in a letter in June 1925.
Harry was cool; he did not press her. He dropped by Dayton for a face-to-face meeting; they admitted their mutual feelings; but Harry was considerate of her concern for Orville. They arranged another meeting - Katharine invited Harry to visit Lambert Island.
Harry arrived during the last week of July and they finally kissed while Orville was out fishing. By the time Harry left on August 11, they had decided to get married.
Orville was completely clueless as to what was going on between Katharine and Harry.
When Harry left the next day, Orville descended into a world-class sulk.
Katharine Wright married Harry Haskell on November 20, 1926 in Oberlin.
Harry's family welcomed her, particularly his son Henry to whom Katharine grew especially close.
The Kansas City Star was sold to its employees and Harry became a major stockholder as well as an officer in the publishing firm. More important, Harry's professional reputation as an editorial writer grew daily. The paper won a Pulitzer Prize for its editorials in 1933 largely due to his efforts, and Harry was awarded his own Pulitzer for editorial writing in 1944.
Harry and Katharine decided to take a voyage to Italy and Greece in 1929 - they both shared a love of these classic cultures and languages, the result of their Oberlin education.
Harry escorted Orville to Katharine's room and announced, "Here is Orv, Katharine.
Unless you know something of classical art - and Harry Haskell knew plenty - it's not immediately clear why Harry chose this particular statue as a tribute to Katharine.
