The Wood bio is extensive: In the 1960s he graduated from Vanderbilt, earned a master's degree in English at the University of North Carolina, and taught English at the University of Tennessee at
Martin. Wanting to better understand the country, he entered the graduate program in American Studies at the University of New Mexico and took courses in several different departments. After earning his Ph.D., he worked as a housing planner in Metairie, Louisiana, before returning to Albuquerque, where he held
positions as a technical writer, a managing editor for a database and a real estate appraiser. In 1992 he earned a master's in Library and Information Science at Louisiana State University, and in 1993 he began working as a reference librarian at the LSU Medical Center, now the Health sciences Center, in Shreveport.
