A number of folks have speculated as to who the author of the "Wood's Wisdom"
book is. The original idea, most of the illustrations and a lot of the writing
was done by a long-time (>50 years) Scouter from New Jersey named Lee White.
Many, many other people made contributions to the effort. Lots of material was
collected from various sources to create the current version. Originally
conceived as a Roundtable manual, it evolved into a much broader book. A new,
significant update is currently "under construction".
The author is a commercial artist who has contributed a lot of material to the
Scouting publications we have read over the years. An active Scouter, Mr.
White served my district as Roundtable Commissioner, and is currently planning
a Wood Badge course for the Fall of 1995, where he will serve as Course
Scoutmaster. He is the very model of a Scouter in every aspect of his
behavior, and it shows in the projects with which he is associated.
