“JIMMY” JAMES WASHINGTON DOUGLAS – Age 16 – 17
- Born May 10th, 1915 in St. Louis County, Missouri
- Son of Mayor John Jefferson Douglas & Collette Faye (Hubbard) Douglas
Micah Fillmore Hubbard, born 1899
- Occupation: NA
- Location: Mount Sterling, Illinois (Brown County)
- Personal interview: “My pa is the strongest man in the world. And I hate him.”
- Character profile: Jimmy’s historical roots in South Carolina provided him with a politically-energized environment to play in, and he is always surrounded by affluent political acquaintances of his father who believe in lofty spending and showering sons with discipline instead of frivolous love. Work hard, play mean, and the rewards will benefit. Jimmy has hardly taken to this belief system the way his father has. He finds himself much more intrigued by the professional underground gambling rings establishing themselves all over the country than in any professional, competitive political career. He finds friendship with hoboes and prefers sleeping in the jungles, or hobo shacks, along the railroad tracks. No one is calling him home. The relationship with his mother is almost non-existent, as is his relationship with his half-brother Micah whom he’s never met.
