Ohio Gov. James Rhodes's efforts in the early 1960s to place public higher education facilities within 30 miles of every Ohioan led to the birth of Wright State University. At the time, Dayton was a high-technology center with a particular need for a highly developed labor force. Community leaders mounted a private capital-fund campaign to secure a joint branch campus for The Ohio State University and Miami University that could be converted into a unified state university.
