Obituary

Thomas L. Wood, for 24 years past assistant state librarian at Montpelier, died of dropsy Wednesday at the home of his brother in Randolph aged 61 years. A Masonic funeral was held Saturday. Three brothers and three sisters all of Randolph, survive him. Mr. Wood was unmarried and for many years has made his home at the Pavillion in Montpelier. He had been in failing health for several years and at times was obliged to leave his work in the state library. He was one of the most widely known men in Vermont, especially among the legal fraternity, as his duties in the library brought him in contact with them very largely. He was born in Randolph August 1, 1839, and was educated in the Orange county grammar school and Newbury seminary. He then went to Conner's Commercial college of Boston. He was a member of the 10th Vt. Vols., was of the Rebellion. He was appointed messenger in the state library in 1876, and promoted to assistant state librarian in 1878, a position which he had held until his death.
