Recollections of ADL James Maurice “Jumpin’ Jim” Gavin (1907-1990)

See the Summer 2016 newsletter for the story of “Jumpin’ Jim” Gavin in the members only area of this website.

Many books have been written about Jim Gavin. The ADLAA newsletter stories are provided in installments—the first dealing with his childhood through World War II, and the second focused on his time at ADL. Along the way, several who knew of his exploits at ADL have contributed their own anecdotes. This first set, James M. Gavin—childhood through the end of WWII, was prepared by Craig Lentz working with Kathy Thrun.
