CAZA 40/01:  Christmas Card to Dr. Albert Zahm from the Wrights of Dayton, Ohio
(a certain Orville and Wilbur), 1909.

Dr. Zahm was a physics professor at Notre Dame from 1883 to 1892.  He was a pioneering figure in the development of aviation and aeronautics.  His relationship with the Wright brothers, however, deteriorated when he testified against them in favor of Glenn Curtiss in a patent lawsuit in the early 1910s.
