Hugh C. Wood

Mr. Hugh C. Wood was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, September 5th, 1874. His father was the late J. D. Wood, prominent in mining and livestock circles in the inter-mountain region. His mother was Catherine Wood, who was a pioneer in the early history of Denver, Salt Lake City and Virginia City, Montana.

Mr. Wood's primary education was acquired in the public schools of Idaho and later he spent two years at All Hallow's College in Salt Lake City, and completed his education at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.

In 1899 he married Rosa Hulaniski of Ogden, Utah, a daughter of Hon. E. T. Hulaniski. The union has been a happy one and is abundantly blessed by two sons, David Edmond and Francis Hugh, and a daughter, Marcia.

Since leaving college Mr. Wood has been prominently and actively identified in the various interests held by his father, J. D. Wood, and his brother, F. J. Hagenbarth. He maintains a summer home at Spencer, Idaho, where he is largely interested in the Wood Live Stock Company, and the Wood-Hagenbarth Cattle Company.

Mr. Wood has never held any political office except that of com missioner of Labor in the State of Idaho, though he has at all times been prominently identified with the interests of and been an active worker in the ranks of the Republican party of Idaho.

Mr. Wood and his wife are both of a social bent and are well known in society circles both in Ogden and Salt Lake City. He is a member of the Alta Club of this city, and has attained a high rank in the Masonic fraternity, having taken all but the last degree.

At the present time Mr. Wood is vice-president and assistant manager of the Wood Live Stock Company, vice-president of the Wood-Hagenbarth Cattle Company, treasurer and director of the J. D. Wood Company and holds directorships or official positions in many of the larger mining companies of this State and Nevada. He is a young man and has early fulfilled the promise of a bright youth, and as history is made he will no doubt enroll his name high among the illustrious native sons of the West.
