Jack Kelvin Bleich was born in Atlanta in 1907. His parents, who originally came from Hungary, owned a grocery store and coal and wood yard. He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology and then studied to become a medical doctor at Emory University. Dr. Bleich describes life in Atlanta during his childhood in the 1920s and 1930s including his education, his father's work, his home and the Jewish neighborhoods, and activities. As an adult he was active in the Hungarian Benevolent Society. He served in the army during World War II and married Gaeveda Walkup after the war. He set up a private medical practice and helped finance the medical education of other prospective doctors at Emory University through scholarships and financial aid. He also discusses the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of many Atlanta residents in Paris, France in 1962. He and his wife were scheduled to go on that trip but cancelled at the last moment.
