Ellis E. "Woody" Erdman

Born in Ashland, PA April 7th, 1926, Ellis Elwood Erdman became known as “Woody” beginning early in his broadcast career at Penn State College.

During his roller-coaster career he reached amazing heights, such as being a 3 year owner of the Boston Celtics, and lows, in a final attempt at success, of which the only surviving record is a biased account by the SEC.

No life is can be simply depicted by one source, so this site was created to provide perspective on my father, Woody Erdman, and our life as a family in Ithaca, New York.
