Rev. Wood was the architect of the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, West Roxbury, MA (1893). Born in upstate New York, he was self-taught as an architect. He built several churches in Buffalo, Cleveland, Minnesota, and Massachusetts. In the late 1870s, Wood became an adherent of the numerological theories of Charles Piazzi Smyth, who believed that sacred mysteries were inscribed in the measurements of the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
