Scope and Content Note

The series consists of correspondence sent to and by the Wood family from 1927 to 2011. The correspondence is primarily of a personal nature. There are a large number of letters from the late 1930s between Charles Wood and Elaine McGregor, a student at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. There is a significant amount of material related to Jean Marie Wood's college admissions in 1967 and Harry Wood's search for industrial employment in 1970. There are also letters between Ruth Wood and Carrie Newkirk of North Carolina, a personal friend, in the 1980s, and letters to Ruth Wood from her grandchildren in the 2000s.
