Dr. David moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1965 when he was 10 years old.  His father, Sam, started a sleigh ride business in 1967 which continues today by his younger brother Dwight.  At a very young age Dr. David was telling Tahoe History stories on the sleigh rides.  Over the years, Dr. David has given Tahoe History lectures to elementary schools, service organizations and professional organizations and Lake Tahoe Community College. Many have asked if they can get more information so this page is dedicated to Tahoe History.
