This house was the address of the Rev. Dr. Elmer Bugg Atwood (1874 - 1957) when he registered for the draft in 1918. Between 1914 and 1919, Atwood was Corresponding Secretary of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico. While in Albuquerque, his family lived at 714 S. Edith (apparently destroyed), and at 737 S. Edith. He was the president of Wayland Baptist College (now University) in Plainview, Texas from 1919 until 1923. The Atwoods had two accomplished sons, one of whom made the cover of Newsweek Magazine (21 Dec. 1964, "Apollo and the Moon Men - North American's Lee Atwood).
