Jim Woods, former co-proprietor and chairman of directors of The Queanbeyan Age, was a widely admired printer, journalist, editor and publisher. Woods was born in Temora and began his career with the Temora Independent. During his 66 years in the business, Woods had a proprietorial and management interest in 11 country newspapers, including the Crookwell Gazette, Queanbeyan Age, Braidwood Dispatch, Cooma Monaro Express, Batemans Bay Post, Moruya Examiner, Narooma News, Bega District News, Eden Magnet, Young South West Pictorial and the Narrandera Argus. Woods' headquarters was in Crookwell in 1949. After nine years, in 1958, Woods and his family moved to Queanbeyan to take over the management and part-ownership of The Queanbeyan Age. In 1995, he launched his memoirs, Looking Back, which covered his life in the industry, his family and many other interests. The manuscript was so popular it was reprinted in 2000 with an update. (from Woods' obituary, Sydney Morning Herald, 30 Sept 2016).Book donated and signed by the author.
