Scope and Content

The Edith Elmer Wood Collection covers a short but important period in the housing field. The bulk of the collection spans from 1917-1943. Papers consist primarily of correspondence, architectural drawings and blueprints, manuscripts, maps, photographs, clippings, pamphlets, press releases, reports, notebooks, legal documents, and miscellaneous documents are also included.

The collection documents, among other things, Wood's involvement as member, officer, or consultant with the U.S. government housing agencies, and national, regional, state, city, and international housing organizations. Organizations include United States Public Works Administration, 1930s-1940s; U.S. Housing Authority, 1930s-1940s; President's Conference on House Building and Home Ownership, 1930s; U.S. Dept. of Commerce, 1920s-1940s; New Jersey State Housing Authority, 1930s-1940s; National Association of Housing Officials, 1930s-1940s; National Housing Association, 1910s-1930s; National Public Housing Conference, 1930s-1940s; International Housing Association, 1920s-1940s; organizations in California, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., and particularly New York and New Jersey. Wood's correspondence, circa 1900s-1930s, with housing groups in Belgium, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Norway, Spain, and particularly Great Britain, is included.

The collection also includes correspondence (with related legal documents, clippings, and reports) relating to housing legislation in the U.S., New York, New Jersey (including the Wagner-Ellenbogen bill); course outlines, reading lists, examinations, correspondence, notes, and other instructional material from courses Wood taught at Teachers College, Columbia University, and the Dept. of Home Economics at Iowa State College; manuscripts of lectures and speeches with related correspondence; and photographs, biographical essays, and miscellaneous documents.

When the collection was donated to Avery Library descriptive labels were on the manuscript boxes. It was discovered though that the labels did not necessarily correspond to the contents of the boxes. More concise identifying labels were needed. In some instances, attempts had been made to organize material within the boxes. When possible, the original arrangement was used. When several pieces of correspondence were found clamped together or enclosed in the same envelope, they were usually left that way. This was due to the assumption that Dr. Wood or her secretary had arranged them in that manner because of some kind of relationship between the pieces of material. If the date was lacking on the correspondence, the postmarked date from the envelope was bracketed on the letter in pencil.
