Brother Martin Burkhard was born May 7, 1916 in Anaheim, California, the son of John and Clara (Depweg) Burkhard.
Br. Martin attended Anaheim Union High School in the early 1930s. He first tried the monastic life with the Trappist monks in Pecos, New Mexico (that community has since moved to Oregon), and in 1949 he came to St. Benedict's Abbey as a claustural oblate.
