Willie Bogan was among the "most honored" members of Dartmouth's undefeated team in 1970 – a team that many consider to be one of the best in Ivy League football history.
One of Daniel and Rofie Bogan's nine children, Willie came to Dartmouth from Albion, Michigan, choosing the hills of New Hampshire over an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy (his parents' choice).
Bogan graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude from Dartmouth in 1971. As a senior, Bogan earned All-Ivy, All-New England and All-East honors, played in two post-season all-star games, and was drafted in the eighth round of the 1971 NFL draft by the Baltimore Colts. He studied as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, receiving a degree in politics and economics in 1973, before earning his law degree from Stanford University in 1976.
Currently, Bogan is Associate General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of McKesson Corporation, the nation's largest healthcare provider and a leader in health care information systems. Based in San Francisco, McKesson is ranked 14th among Fortune 500 companies.
Before joining McKesson in 2006, Bogan held senior counselor positions with several companies in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas and was a partner at Steinberg, Miller, Bogan and Goldstein in Los Angeles. Over the years he has been involved with numerous community and professional activities in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In 2010, he was named one of Savoy Magazine's Top 100 Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America.
Bogan and his wife, Carmen, have two daughters.
