This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Walter Carroll, Jr., whose source is information is S.E. H., of Slidell, La., whose father, the late Ernest Eustis, knew the Wood family, including Burris and Ella Miriam Wood.

Ella Miriam Wood studied at the Newcomb Art School, New Orleans, under Ellsworth and/or William Woodward. Information from NEWCOMB POTTERY, An enterprise for Southern Women, 1895-1940, Jessie Poesch, 1984, is that she entered the Normal Art program of the Newcomb Art School in 1905, completing her course study in 1908, when she was awarded a Diploma in Art.

She was listed as a post-graduate student in 1910-1911 and as an Instructor in Watercolor for 1912-1913. Miss Wood's concentration was in the field of painting, as distinguished from the other fields then of interestat Newcomb.

During the late Depression, Mrs. Charles (Ernestine) McLellan, who was a cousin residingin New Orleans, sponsored art lessons in her State Street home with Ella Miriam Wood as the instructor. Mrs. McLellan was an artist herself, and likelythe program was intended in partas aneeded financial boostfor Ella Wood. Her specialty was portraiture, and the mother of the source of some of this information served as a model.

In her later years Ella Miriam Wood lived in New Orleans at Stanton Manor (a retirement home) with her sister Papoose. Later, when her sister became ill, both moved toSt. Anna's Residence (another retirement home), where she died December 7, 1976. Distant cousins still reside in New Orleans.
