Patrick M. Wood
Patrick M. Wood "founded The August Corporation on October 11, 1975. As a registered investment advisor with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company initially offered portfolio management services to investors in the United States.
"In 1978, Wood commenced publication of The Trilateral Observer (TO), to specifically track and document the activities of The Trilateral Commission, which was then seen to be the very core of elitism and multi-nationalism in the United States and abroad. TO was co-edited by Professor Antony Sutton, formerly a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution for War, Peace and Revolution at Stanford University.
"Together, and after encouragement from many TO subscribers, Wood and Professor Sutton re-edited their material and produced two successive book volumes, Trilaterals Over Washington - Volume I and Trilaterals Over Washington - Volume II...
"When President Ronald Reagan entered the Oval Office in early 1981, August's formal publishing activities ground to a halt. Conservative supporters figured that "Ronnie" would purge the Trilateral threat. Liberal supporters felt so defeated that they just gave up.
"In 1981, Wood founded World Research Library (WRL) which was granted 501c(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service. Research and library material was donated to WRL.
"In early 2005, Wood and his family moved from northern California to northern Idaho, to engage a simpler lifestyle and resume the original research and publishing activities to expose the super-elitists (like members of the Trilateral Commission), who continue to have a death-grip on the U.S. national Sovereignty, foreign policy and many econonomic activities that supercede America's national borders.
"Hence, The August Review lives on the Internet as the official publication of World Research Library." 
"Wood became the leading authority on the elitist Trilateral Commission in the 1970's and 1980's, and appeared on over 200 radio and TV shows including a 3 hour long debate on Larry King with then Executive Director of the Trilateral Commission, Charles Heck."
