Abstract:

Correspondence, articles, business files, clippings, documents, memorabilia and photographs regarding the life and career of Frank H. Woods, Jr. and his family.

Correspondence, much of which relates to the Sahara Coal Company and Woods's relationship with his father, Frank H. Woods, Sr., in running the company, 1935-1952, and other letters which deal with Woods's business interests. Also, family correspondence, to and from Woods and between other family members, and a large group of condolence letters after his death. A major part of the collection concerns Woods's civic and philanthropic activities with articles, documents and records, clippings and other items, especially concerning his involvement with the Art Institute of Chicago and the Woods Charitable Foundation's support of the Willa Cather Pioneer Memorial Educational Foundation in Red Cloud, Nebraska. Also, a large collection of portraits, snapshots and family photographs, many of which are in albums commemorating summers spent at the Woods vacation home on Madeline Island in Wisconsin.
