Rufus Woods was a long-time co-owner and editor of the Wenatchee Daily World. He advocated for the construction of Grand Coulee Dam in Washington state. During the war years, he pressed for defense contracts for the region and highlighted the importance of the newly completed dam. He also endorsed the need for more dams to fulfill the war-time power needs of the Columbia Valley. For more information, please see the Rufus Woods Papers.
