And, like the character in his books, Michael really graduated from a high school simply know as “WA-HI”, where he served as Student Body President. In 1968, the David attended Walla Walla College, a private, denominational, rather ridged institution of higher learning.

Michael David went on to attend Washington State University for 2 ½ years. He dropped out of WSU in 1970, sold all his belongings and bought a one-way ticket to the island of Maui, with no intention of returning. After living in a place called Banana Patch, Michael found himself moving to Portland, Oregon, joining a rock’n’roll band, and meeting Nanci, who would later become his wife and mother to their two children.

Michael attended Portland State University and there received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Philosophy. Michael and his wife moved back to Walla Walla in 1978 and have lived there ever since. Michael David served on the Walla Walla City Council from 1981 through 1991, and held the office of Mayor in 1986-87.
