David Bruce Banner was born in Trevorton, Colorado, in the first half of the s. His father, D. Banner, wanted David to stay on the family farm and take it over from him someday—D. David, though, had always wanted to be a doctor, something his family knew about him ever since he was five years old, when David's sister, Helen, caught him performing surgery on one of her favorite dolls. David, at 18, had even more incentive, though, to attend university someplace far away from Trevorton always keeping in mind that his eventual goal was, of course, medical school.
