A Look Into the Past

Woodmen of the World

Joseph Cullen Root originally founded the first group, Modern Woodmen of America (MWA), because he wanted to create a fraternal benefit society that would "bind in one association the Jew and the Gentile, the Catholic and the Protestant, the agnostic and the atheist."  While he succeeded with MWA being that type of organization, heated arguments resulted in Root and another man being evicted from the society. Root kept the name 'woodmen' because he was inspired by a sermon that talked about "woodmen clearing the forest to provide for their families."  Root saw Woodmen of the World as being an organization that would "clear away problems of financial security for its members." The Woodmen of the World organization was probably best known for its gravestones. From 1890 to 1900, WOW's life insurance policies had a proviso that provided for the grave markers, free of charge for members.  From 1900 to the mid- 1920's, members purchased a $100 rider to cover the cost of the monument.  By the mid-20's, the organization had discontinued the grave marker benefit due to the increased cost of the stones.Today, Woodmen of the World is one of the largest fraternal benefit society with open membership in the United States.  The organization provides not only insurance, but also investment, bonds, real estate and mortgage loans to its members.
