David graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1904 and served in the United States Army for twenty years. He commanded troops in the Artillery Corps in Cuba, Panama, the Philippines, and in France during WWI.
Following his service in the Army, he passed the bar exam and practiced law in California and Ohio, while simultaneously pursuing a variety of business interests. Among his pastimes were collecting old illustrated manuscripts and rare books.
He was a devoted husband, father of two, and grandfather of twelve. Upon his death, a significant portion of his collection was given to the Ross County Historical Society in his native Chillicothe. The McKell Library in that city is named in his memory.
