Scripts and screenplays of original theatrical works and adaptations for the stage and screen by David Gaard, alone and in
collaboration with others, together with some production and performance materials, including contracts, set designs, e-mails,
schedules, flyers, postcards, programs, and reviews.
David Gaard was born April 4, 1945, in Duluth, Minnesota. He graduated from high school early, just after his 16th birthday.
He attended the University of Minnesota; however his participation in Vietnam War protests, a role in a university theater
production, and an active social life left little time for his studies. In the autumn, he left school and stayed in Minneapolis,
obtaining a role in a community theater production. When the show closed, he convinced his parents of his need to "find himself",
and with their blessings he left for Los Angeles.
