From the Penn State
Vance Packard (May 22, 1914 – December 12, 1996) was an American journalist, social critic, and author.
He was born in Granville Summit, Pennsylvania to parents Philip J. Packard and Mabel Case Packard.
Between 1920-32 he attended local public schools in State College, Pennsylvania where his father managed a farm owned by the Pennsylvania State College (later Penn State University). In 1932 he entered Penn State, majoring in English. He graduated in 1936, and worked briefly for the local newspaper, the Centre Daily Times. He earned his master's degree at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1937. That year, he joined the Boston Daily Record as a staff reporter and a year later, he married Virginia Matthews.
