Richard T. Wood Collection on Early Fidelity and Blanket Bond History, 1872-1940

Richard T. Wood was the manager of the bank division of the American Surety Company. He worked on a thesis entitled “Fidelity Bonding Methods: Early Fidelity and Blanket Bond History” for the Insurance Institute of America from 1928-1939, during which time he wrote to others for information pertaining to his thesis on early fidelity and blanket bonding history through 1916. Wood collected letters, telegrams, news articles, and sample blanket and fidelity bonds, among other materials, dating from 1872-1940. The thesis was never completed, and there is no draft of the thesis in the collection.
