History: This College dates back to AS X. While currently it is a part of the Barony of Darkwood, initially St. David was part of the "Marches" (i.e., a branch not in a Principality ...). "The College of St. David was founded by Elenya Adkoshka, Joanna de Lisane, Jaegarr (or Yaegar) Broken Nose, Penog the Red, Karl of Clan Colin, Ealasaid nic Chlurain and Cynara." -- Ceridwen Coedwig

Their first event was November 22, 1975 (A.S. X).

Wilhelm von Schlüssel's original History of the West includes: College of St. David.

Location: UC Santa Cruz, California

More detail from the History of Darkwood:
Originally there were two "groups". The first one was located in Santa Cruz, consisting of students from the University there, and called itself "The College of Saint David." Eventually, some graduates from the university in Santa Cruz formed the Shire of Caer Darth with their first meetings at the home of Master Frank the Fortunate and Mistress Sabrina Goldbender (one of our Barony's first peers).
