Caption WOOD, Harry
Description Harry Wood was an Anacortes city policeman. This image was taken shortly after the Anacortes police department ordered uniforms for their patrolmen. That issue had been a controversy during the 1920s. The 9-17-1925 ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Anacortes police need to wear star on uniforms: people not from town are not sure of who they are." The 3-11-1926 issue reported that "Anacortes police may get uniforms: The 1929 city directory listed Harry and Alice Wood at 914 J Avenue. Wood's occupation was "patrolman." The 1937 directory listed Wood as a yardman at the Morrison Mill Company; he and Alice lived at 3922 Q Avenue. Harry Wood also gained renown for his boxing skills. The 11-21-1929 paper reported his six-round fight to the draw with "California Pete of Mt. Vernon" at the American Legion open boxing card at the Oddfellows Hall.
