I picked up a "Woodcock" pad on EBay last week. Walt documented the variety of pads that Ithaca used through the years in his "Ithaca Featherlight Repeaters... The Best Gun Going" book. All of the different pads and butt plates used on the M37's are shown on pages 270 and 271. Walt also has a separate entry about this pad on page 77 in the same book.
I was able to find the actual patent here: https://patents.google.com/patent/US3208180A/en It appears that it was quite the process to get a patent for a part that was only used for 6 years (1963 to 1969)
