Biographical Note

Ray Wood was born in Girard, Kansas on September 20, 1889 and died February 5, 1964 in Houston, Texas. His career included teaching, government employment and journalism. He first worked in Oklahoma and Arkansas but from 1946 until his death he worked for the Houston Chronicle. Wood specialized in folklore and published two books on the subject: "Mother Goose in the Ozarks" and "Mother Goose in Texas."

Scope and Contents

The main focus of the collection is upon Wood's years as a columnist for the Houston Chronicle and is rick in folklore verses. A small segment of the collection deals with the earlier years of his life. The collection should have special appeal for social-cultural historians and students of literature and folklore. A portion of the collection consists of World War II Associated Press photographs. Another portion, consisting of a large but incomplete file of Hit Parader (1949 - 1962) and other popular song magazines is located in the Fine Arts Department of the Houston Public Library.


The information is arranged in alphabetical order by document type. Within each document type, the arrangement is both alphabetical and chronological.
