He married first to Estelle Grace Field on 1 July 1908. He served during World War I in the intelligence service of the Allies. After his first wife died, he married Estelle Gwendoline Masser, the niece of his first wife, on 16 June 1920 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For the first 4 years of their marriage, his work required them to go back and forth between New York City and Washington D.C., where they lived in the Chatham Hotel or the Lafayette Hotel. They lived in Caracas, Venezuela from 1924-1925, where he handled oil agreements for the United States government. They then moved to Havana, Cuba, where he oversaw the building of the Cuban Highway that spanned the length of the island. He was named for Theodore Woolsey, the President of Yale University, and for Mark Hopkins, a lifetime friend of his grandfather Field.
