Federal judicial service

Woodbury was nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on January 31, 1941, to a seat on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit vacated by Judge Scott Wilson. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on February 18, 1941, and received his commission on February 25, 1941. He served as Chief Judge from 1959 to 1964.

On December 7, 1960, Woodbury was injured when the train he was traveling on collided with a bottled gas truck.[1] Six people were killed in the accident, one of whom was Woodbury's law clerk at the time.

The elementary school in Bedford is named both for him and for his great-grandfather, Peter P. Woodbury.[2]
