Biographical Note

Joseph Wood, Charles's father, was born near Nauvoo, Illinois, but emigrated westward in 1845, eventually setting in Huntsville, Utah in 1860. Charles G. Wood was born on February 23,1867 the second child of what would eventually be ten children to Joseph Wood and Elizabeth Ann Slater. As a young child, Charles's family moved from Huntsville to Austin, Nevada to Lewiston, Utah and eventually settled in Trenton, a small community in Cache Valley, Utah.

Charles entered Salt Lake Academy in September of 1886. While enrolled he worked odd jobs around campus to earn extra money. Charles graduated from the Academy in June of 1886, and the following fall he attended Amherst College in Massachusetts. While at Amherst, Charles was active in the local YMCA and was a member of the Congregational Church. In 1893 he gave a talk to the YMCA on the topic of "Mormon Boys." That same year he was Vice President of his graduating class. Charles Wood was the only student in his class from Utah, and apparently the only one from west of Missouri.

Upon graduating from Amherst, Charles headed back west and took a teaching position in the Trenton school district. He signed a contract on September 9, 1893, earning $40.00 per month. He would eventually become a member of the school board. Charles was a also a farmer and served on an irrigation committee to bring water to Trenton. During his life, Charles also served as the first mayor of Trenton in 1919 and served in the Utah State Legislature as House Republican from 1921-1926.

Charles was married to Letitia Alice Litz, also a native Utah from Lewiston, on November 23, 1898. They would eventually have five children. The childhood home of Letitia Litz was placed on the historic register for Utah in the 1970s. Charles died in Logan, Utah on December 27, 1946.

Content Description

The Charles G. Wood collection begins with letters written by various members of Wood's family between 1889 and 1939, grouped by sender. Box 2 consists of non-familial correspondence ranging in date from 1889 to 1923, grouped and arranged in alphabetical order by sender. The bulk of the non-familial letters, however, are centered on the 1890s. Most of the letters from family members were received from Charles' sister, Nettie Ann Wood.

Folder 3 of Box 2 also holds some interesting school programs for commencement exercises. There are programs from graduation ceremonies at the University of Deseret (1891), Salt Lake Collegiate Institute (1891), and Salt Lake Academy (1889 and 1891). The Wood collection continues with Box 3, mostly containing household expense materials. Notably, this box contains an application form for teaching filled out by Charles in 1897.

Box 4 is comprised mostly of materials from his college years. As with Box 2, there is a folder that contains an array of commencement programs, this time from varying years at Amherst College. This box covers Charles's entire academic career, beginning with grades and tuition payments for the Salt Lake Academy in 1886, and concluding with correspondence from the Amherst Alumni Association through 1920. Class lecture notes, homework assignments, and essays from his college days are all held in Box 5.

Boxes 6 through 8 are supplemental to the collection and contain a thorough selection of Charles's checks and deposit statements from 1900-1934, with only a handful of years incomplete. Of the supplemental boxes, Box 9 is probably the most interesting historically. It houses Charles's legislative books from the terms he served in the Utah State Legislature. Both books labeled "Senate Bills" have personal notes written by Charles throughout.

The collection, as a whole, offers the researcher a view of rural life in Cache Valley, Utah as well as a glimpse into college life (both in Salt Lake City and Massachusetts) from the late 1800s and a glance into the state legislature in the 1920s.-
