Born in Los Angeles, California, Wolfe served in World War II, and was thereafter an intelligence analyst for the U.S. State Department.

Wolfe was president of Florida International University from 1979 until his resignation in 1986, during which time he oversaw significant growth as the university progressed from being an exclusively upper-division school (having no freshman or sophomores) to becoming a four-year college granting post-graduate degrees. The Florida State Legislature recognized Wolfe's contributions to the growth and emergence of FIU by naming the Gregory Baker Wolfe University Center, located on FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus, in his honor.

Wolfe died in Coral Gables, Florida.
