Biography:
Russel M. Wood was born December 17, 1912 in McKean Township, Pennsylvania. He earned a bachlors degree in math from Edinboro State College in 1935. He went on to extend his education at Indiana State College and the University of Michigan where he studied music. He began his career as a musician by selling instruments door to door. Then he moved on to teach math at the Girard School District while at the same time developing the music program there. In 1959 he began working at Edinboro State College in the business offices. He stayed here for 15 years and it is during that time that he took photograhs of the campus that are now in the university archive.
