Joe Wood was an accomplished photojournalist with the St. Louis Globe-Democrat for twenty seven years. He has been inducted into the Missouri photojournalist hall of fame. The collection is a small sample of the photographers work and contains some wonderful sports photography. In addition to his career with a camera, Mr. Wood served in the United States Merchant Marines during WWII, bred dogs, and was an excellent violinist. He also had a stint as a boxer during his youth. In 1949 Wood got involved with J. Frank Dalton who claimed to be Jesse James. The experience was related in the pages of the Washington Missourian and a book entitled My Jesse James Story.
The collection consists of 278 photographic prints on such topics as sports, dogs, U.S. Merchant Marine, Bourbon Street in New Orleans, and Music.
