  Justice Associates: Jack Jordon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
It seems that Jack took his grandmother's request seriously, as two days later, the 6th, he was on a steamer bound for England, newly volunteered for the Royal Naval Air Service, with nothing but a hastily written note left behind on his mother's bed to inform her of his whereabouts.
Jack was pushing the limits of his skill and luck all the time, and having the time of his life.
Kavanagh mentioned Jordan to the casting people and a week later, Jack's career had taken another unexpected turn as he was on set filming his first movie, albeit in a background role.

 ABSTRACTS from Labour/Le Travail 30, Fall 1992
Jack Kavanagh and the Early Years of the Communist Movement in Vancouver (1920-1925)
IN THE HISTORY OF Canadian labour and the left from 1900 to 1925 the radical life of Jack Kavanagh represents an important link between the politics of pre-war socialism and post-war communism.
At the level of leadership, however, the foundation period of the communist movement in Vancouver was dominated by recurring disputes between Kavanagh and the party centre in Toronto, suggesting a kind of regional factionalism.

Jack Kavanagh wrote this when he was in his early thirties, and it contributed to his rise in leftist circles in Vancouver.
It was in Vancouver that he received his training in Marxist philosophy, which would lead him to a prominent position in the One Big Union (no relation to the Industrial Workers of the World) and then ultimately the Communist Party of Canada.
Altough Kavanagh's sources are unclear in this document, and though it was obviously written with a very clear political goal, it is still one of the best contemporary documents on the strike.

 Bibliography Committee Newsletter October 1998
Kavanagh asserts the universal resentment of the reserve clause among ballplayers and notes (p.103) that Johnson's resentment "was particularly bitter".
Part of Kavanagh's intent is to reinforce the idea that Alexander's achievement as a ballplayer is on a par with those of Johnson and Mathewson.
Kavanagh follows Alexander's career after his departure from the major leagues, detailing various efforts to provide him with a subsistence income, describing him finally (p.167) as "broke, seriously ill with cancer, and longing to teach kids how to play ball." Perhaps these phrases sum up Alexander's tragedy.

Like many talented players, he attempted to work as a team manager after his playing days were over and did badly at it.
Kavanagh, author of many YA baseball biographies, provides a solidly written account of the life of "Sir Walter," one of baseball's greatest pitchers during the first quarter of this century.
While many biographies will tend to go into the intricacies of a man's private life, Jack Kavanaugh seems to only look into these areas when it would explain the on field actions of Johnson.

I have always wondered why there was not more written about this early hero of baseball who seemed to have such a sad and tragic life, and was very excited when I found this book.
Jack Kavanagh did a wonderful job of researching the ins and outs of Ol' Pete, and reading of his life and hardships was very informative.
But I believe he allowed the book to drag just a bit by trying to include too much detail about meaningless games.
