Ellis Walker Woods – in 1913, he was the first principal of Booker T. Washington High School.  Under his 35 year tenure, Washington became the first Tulsa high school to be accredited by the North Central Association, due largely to Woods recruitment of teachers with advanced degrees.  His efforts on behalf of the school culminated with the passage of a bond issue for the construction of the current Washington High School facility.
