Oberdorfer Donald Sr OHC.jpg

Donald Oberdorfer Sr. is a member of the prominent Oberdorfer family in Atlanta. His father was in the insurance business and he followed very successfully in his footsteps. Donald Sr. is the father of Donald Jr. (a journalist) and Eugene II (also in insurance). He was very active in the Jewish community, both in Atlanta and nationally, as well as the general Atlanta community in organizations such as Community Chest and others. He was involved with the American Jewish Committee, the ADL, many of the Jewish social service agencies over the years, both local and nationwide, and worked with the Joint Defense Appeal which was organized to help the Jews of Europe in World War II. He grew up in Atlanta and discusses his childhood, his family, the insurance business, antisemitism and the social scene in Atlanta and the southeast in general.
