Dr Thomas Wood

Hi

I am researching the life of Dr Thomas Wood, composer, author and resident of the Old Parsonage at Bures from around 1924 until his death in 1950. Wood was married to St Osyth Mahala Smith, with whom he was prominent in many local activities, including the British Legion. If anyone has any relevant information I can be contacted by email on g.seal@curtin.edu.au or by mail at Humanities, Curtin University Box U1987 GPO Perth Western Australia 6016.

Thanks

Graham Seal
