Society figure, publisher. He was the eldest son of William 'Billy' Woodward, Jr., who was shot and killed by his wife Ann in 1955 in a notorious case that later became the subject of three books, among them "The Two Mrs. Grenvilles" by Dominick Dunne, and "Answered Prayers" by Truman Capote. He and his younger brother Jimmy were in the house at the time of the shooting but claimed they had seen and heard nothing. Woody worked as a reporter for the "New York Post" for three years, then went on to co-found and publish "More," a journalism review. He also served as Deputy Superintendent for the New York State Department of Banking under Governor Hugh Carey. He ran unsuccessfully for the New York Senate in 1978. He committed suicide by jumping out the window of his 14th story Manhattan apartment.
