Francis G WOOD
exh 1906-7

Headmaster of Penzance School of Art, taking over from William Henry KNIGHT in 1916. For four years he built it up successfully and was highly respected for being one of the 'best art teachers in the west of England'.  Wood resigned in 1920, perhaps fearing the loss of the school's local independence, and was replaced by James W LIAS. In that year he prepared plans for the Lelant War Memorial.
