Leonard Wood

a.k.a. Major General Leonard Wood

Author Code: AGLW

Born: Oct. 9, 1860 - Winchester, New Hampshire, USA

Died: Aug. 7, 1927 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at Pierce Academy and Harvard Medical School, Wood received his MD degree in 1884. In 1885, he became an Army physician in Arizona Territory and took part in the final campaign against Geronimo in 1886. That year, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for carrying dispatches through hostile Indian territory and for taking command of a detachment in pursuit of Geronimo after its officer had been killed. Until the outbreak of war with Spain in 1898, Wood was the personal physician of Presidents Cleveland and McKinley. Together with his close friend Theodore Roosevelt, he helped to organize the Rough Riders and led them and other units in various battles in Cuba, including the taking of San Juan hill. After the war, he became the Military Governor of Cuba until 1902, when he was assigned to the Philippines as commander of the Philippine Division. In 1903, he was promoted to major general and was appointed governor of Moro province. In 1910, he was appointed Army Chief of Staff by President Taft and introduced many reforms and innovations in the Army over the ensuing years until he was replaced in 1914. During the First World War, Wood was in charge of training at Camp Funston. He ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 1920, but was defeated by Warren Harding. He retired from the Army in 1921 and was appointed Governor of the Philippines until ill health caused his return to America in 1927. Suffering from a brain tumor, Wood died after undergoing surgery. Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri is named in his honor. Wood's primary written works include Military Obligation of Citizenship (1915), Our Military History (1916), Universal Military Training (1917) and America's Duty As Shown by Our Military History (1921).
