    Wood, George Henry, Collection Fonds

    This collection comprises the majority of the personal reference library of George Henry Wood which was first deposited with Huddersfield Technical College as a long term loan in 1926 and subsequently gifted to the institution in 1948 upon Wood's death. The section of the library Wood loaned the College was predominately the Economic and statistical works and due to various subsequent removals to other institutions and some loss the collection we currently hold is not the complete original deposit. Wood gave the collection the title of 'The Library of a Sociologist' which is a good summary of the overarching theme of the collection. The majority of documents included in the library are pamphlets, either loose or bound together, covering social issues such as industrialisation, the economy and the welfare of the working people. The remaining documents are mostly biography books and manuscripts written by Wood himself. Wood was a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and a well renowned authority on the subject of workers' wages and conditions and so naturally a large amount of the collection is given over to such research.

    The collection remains in much condition as when it was donated although some additions were made later, most notably GHW/Q (Administration), which was added by Heritage Quay archivists. Upon receiving the collection the Technical College library staff did alter the structure slightly. Previously Wood had kept the pamphlets and volumes in order of acquisition but it was decided that this needed to be changed in order to improve accessibility. The structure was later altered even further when library and archive staff split the collection into sections and subsections based on the themes covered in the documents. The sections are:
