Born in Auburn, NY, Frank Wood's literary career began around 1858. During this year, he wrote for one of the publications of Frank Leslie.
"Prominently brilliant among the group of bright young men who at that time occasionally illumined the gloom of the vault under the street down at Pfaff's was Mr. Frank Wood. He was one of the contributors to Vanity Fair, and one who to considerable literary talent added the qualifications of a most fascinating manner and a sympathetic, amiable disposition" (140).
"Artemus Ward and Frank Wood became great friends" (140).
Served as Ward's agent for "Babes in the Wood" "who would pioneer the way and attend to the business affairs" (140)
