Brautigan often stated that he never finished high school, even though he graduated from Eugene High School, in Eugene, Oregon, 9 June 1953. He did not attend college and considered himself self-taught. Several critics noted an anti-academic style to his writing. Despite this image of not valuing education, Brautigan was eager to teach courses or participate in educational seminars and conferences.
