|Another Jd Salinger
J.D. Salinger's youth and war experiences influenced his
writings. J.D. went through four different schools for
education. He then went to World War II. After the war, he
had a lot to say, so he wrote down his thoughts. And, he
sure had some things to say.
Jerome David Salinger came into this world on January 1,
1919. J.D. was short for Jerome David. Jerome David went
by J.D. when he was young and he never let go of the name
as he got older. J.D. was born in New York City, New
York (Ryan 2581).
J.D. Salinger's parents were Sol and Miriam Salinger (Ryan
2581). His father, Sol Salinger, was born in Cleveland,
Ohio, and is said to have been the son of a rabbi. However,
Sol drifted far from orthodox Judaism to become an
importer of hams.
Sol married a Scotch-Irish lady (French 21). The lady's
name was Marie Jillich. She changed her name to Miriam to
fit into her husband's family (French 21).
