British conductor and composer.

Wood, with Robert Newman, founded the Promenade Concerts, which he conducted annually from 1895 until his death. He was also a composer of operettas and an oratorio in addition to his popular Fantasy on Sea Songs (1905), heard every year on the Last Night of the Proms.

This is a very fine signature in dark blue fountain pen ink on a personal card (4.5" x 3.5"). Some very light album adhesion remains to the reverse but otherwise in very good condition.
