Jordan Perlman interview, 12 August 2011

S. Jordan Perlman moved to Cleveland in 1936. Perlman describes his experiences, in the 1940s and 1950s, growing up in the 105th Street Area. He names the theaters, restaurants and other leisure venues that he frequented. After high school he served in the army and went to college, therefore, he became quite estranged from the University Circle Area. However today Perlman has reconnected with his roots by living at Judson and volunteering at the Cleveland Clinic.
