Walt Grisham grew up on a farm at Hanford in the 1930s. He was serving in the Air Force in England during World War II when his parents were informed that they would need to leave the farm – the site was being requisitioned for the Manhattan Project. 

After the war, Grisham attended the University of Idaho to become an educator. He taught high school for many years in Pasco, WA.
