Biography Gorman Woody
Gorman Woody was born in Kansas in 1907. At an early age he moved with his family to Colorado, then on to Santa Cruz, California where he remained for most of the remainder of his life.
He graduated from Santa Cruz High School in 1925. Afterwards he was a performer at the famous "Plunge" on the Santa Cruz boardwalk. For a period of time he worked for Otar the Lampmaker in Santa Cruz doing drawings, designs, and metal work. He apparently studied painting at an early age, as some of his works date to the early 1930's.
From the 1920's through the 1940's he concentrated on his photographic work. He did a series of aerial shots of Santa Cruz, and the surrounding area. He also worked as a portrait photographer.
