However, before becoming a workhorse for first the New York and then the American Society of Anesthetists, young Wood had arrived in New York in 1913 along with his father and mother. Eventually both of his parents, Professors John and Louise Wood, would train missionaries and ministers at “The Biblical Seminary in New York” (left).
