L.K. Wood: As Everyone Should
Raised in poverty in upstate New York, L.K. was sent to an orphanage after the death of his father. On his way to a better life, he spent the night with hobos, had a brush with the Chicago mob, taught Clark Gable how to knife fight, was radio gunner for the Army in World War II, served as a spy for the OSS, sat in the Oval Office with Richard Nixon, became one of the richest men in Missouri, and helped bring The Gateway Arch to St. Louis.
L.K. spent his life trying to fulfill the promise he
made to his dying father: Take care of the family. His wife Patty and friend Dr. Robert Scudieri compiled L.K.'s biography from his own journals after his death in November 2013.
