About Bruce Wood

Bruce Wood covered his first Dartmouth football game for the Valley News in 1979.

After two years, he left to become sports editor of a daily newspaper in Pennsylvania. He returned to the Upper Valley in 1983 to serve as Dartmouth's assistant sports information director.

In 1988 he rejoined the Valley News where the contacts he made were invaluable in his role as the Dartmouth beat writer through June of 2005.

Bruce has won numerous state and national awards for his writing from the College Sports Information Directors of America and Vermont and New Hampshire press associations. He has written for a wide range of magazines and is the author of the Ivy League chapter in the  ESPN College Football Encyclopedia, published in 2005.

A graduate of Upsala College with a degree in English, Bruce made a solo bicycle trip across the United States before returning to school to earn a master's degree in journalism from Penn State. He wrote his master's on the treatment of Muhammad Ali in the nation's press.

Bruce, his wife Mary Ellen and children Kelly, who will be a college freshman (and distance runner) in 2010, and Matt, a high school junior in 2010, live on the side of Moose Mountain in the rural Hanover village of Etna with their golden retriever, Cooper, whose name really should be Hoover ;-)
