Walt Girdner, was born in central Iowa in 1922. He was one of five children. His father took a job as a Pastor in Alameda where the family moved and relocated to the Bay Area of California in 1925. Growing up during the great depression in the Bay Area was difficult. Walt struggled to make extra money to help out the family by taking on many different jobs. Such jobs varied from working the corn fields and selling corn, to bucking hay bales and pulling double shifts at the cannery.
As a young man, he developed an interest in art and imagery. He had faith that imagery was a powerful way to communicate and believed that young people are better at interpreting imagery than adults for their imaginations are more agile and unencumbered.
Tall and lanky as a teenager, Walt would often run the three miles to school. He later became a high school champion in the quarter-mile and half-mile, and he would anchor the 440-relay. For his speed and endurance, he was offered a track scholarship to Stanford University and recruited for the 1944 US Olympic Team before World War II erupted and cancelled the games. He graduated in 1943 with a degree in psychology.
