SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE
 
The papers contain little material on the early years of his career, his World War I service, and his student days at the Military Academy. The papers do, however, reflect his interest in military affairs and policy, Military Academy. He was a long time member of the Association of Graduates and corresponded with members of the Class of 1900.
 
Other than some printed memorabilia and some letters written in 1915 commending his work, there are no materials from the period when General Wood was actually in Panama. The papers do reflect his interest in the canal. He was active in the efforts of retired employees of the Panama Canal and Panama Railroad company to obtain improved retirement benefits, and wrote many letters to members of Congress on their behalf from the mid-1930's to the mid-1950's. In the late 1950's and early 1960's he became an outspoken advocate of continued United States ownership and control of the canal.
 
After the First World War Wood resigned from the army with the rank of Brigadier General and took a position with Montgomery Ward and Company as Vice-President of Merchandising. Wood became firmly convinced that the future for mail order businesses lay in developing a chain of retail stores. Conflict over this issue led to Wood's resignation from Montgomery Ward in 1924. The Montgomery Ward files in the Papers contain speeches and memoranda from 1919-1924 addressed to other Ward's executives and the sales merchandising force, in which Wood analyzes the Company's policies and profits.
 
Soon after leaving Montgomery Ward, Wood joined Sears, Roebuck and Company as Vice-President of Factories and Retail. In that capacity he led Sears in the new venture of selling through retail stores. He continued increasing the number of retail stores after he became President of the Company in 1928. After guiding Sears through the Depression, Wood stepped up to be Chairman of the Board in 1939, a position he held until 1954. He continued as a Director of the Company until 1968.

The portion of the papers concerning Sears is not large, and consists mostly of memoranda and speeches directed to Sears' managers and executives. Besides revealing sales figures and profits, the files provide some insight into how Sears weathered the Depression, and grew to be the largest retailer in the country. These files also reflect the expansion of Sears into Latin America, the beginnings of the Allstate Insurance Company, and the expansion and administration of the Sears' Profit Sharing Plan.  

The papers reflect not only his business career, but also his interest in the formation of social, economic, and foreign policy from 1933 to the end of his life in 1969. During this period Wood corresponded with a number of well known people on a variety of issues.
 
Wood supported the New Deal in the early 1930's and voted for Roosevelt in 1932 and 1936. He became involved with the Committee for the Nation and its efforts to influence monetary policy. His correspondence with Roosevelt and other administration officials reveals his thinking on the monetary issue. Although Wood became disenchanted with the Roosevelt administration by the late 1930's, he did serve as a governmental advisor in three different areas in 1939. The collection reflects his services on The President's Committee on Civil Service Improvement; as an unpaid advisor to Harry Hopkins in the Commerce Department; and as a member of the War Resources Board.
 
As the United States moved closer to involvement in World War II, Wood joined forces with other Americans who opposed U. S. Intervention in the war. He corresponded with Herbert Hoover, Joseph Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, Truman Smith, Burton Wheeler, and others opposed to U. S. intervention. He opposed Lend-Lease legislation and became chairman of America First Committee.  The files (1940-1941) in his papers include correspondence, bulletins, press releases, and publicity materials used in the campaign to keep America out of the war.
 
With the attack on Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war, Wood disbanded the 
America First Committee and volunteered his services to the government. He served as advisor to the Army Ordnance Department and the papers contain correspondence, reports, and memoranda on how supply systems could be improved. He was also appointed as an advisor to the Air Corps by General H. H. (Hap) Arnold and made several trips to the Pacific and European theatres to analyze and correct supply problems. These trips are documented in the papers by correspondence, reports, memoranda, diaries, and printed materials.
 
During the 1940's Wood became involved in Republican Party politics. He supported MacArthur for the presidential nomination in 1944 and 1948, and was a Taft supporter in 1952. Wood also supported Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy in the early 1950s.  The papers also document Woods activity with conservative organizations: American Action, For America, National Military-Industrial Complex and Americans for Constitutional Action. 
 
Wood served as a task force member with the two Hoover Commissions on the Reorganization of the Executive Branch. He served on the First Hoover Commission as a member of the task force on National Security and was chairman of the task force on Federal Surplus Property in the Second Commission. He also contributed his extensive knowledge of merchandising and distribution while participating in a 1955 survey of Army Post Exchanges. These services to the government are documents with correspondence, reports, and printed material.
 
Wood's extensive interest and participation in service and cultural organizations are also reflected in his papers. He served as President of the Chicago Boys' Clubs of America from 1949 to 1959. He also supported the work of the Boy Scouts, 4-H Clubs, and served on the board of the Cradle Society, a private adoption agency.
 
An extensive name and subject card index has been compiled for this collection arid is available upon request.
