Abstract

This short article recounts the life story of Johns Hopkins Professor Marc Caplan, the first professor of Yiddish at that institution. He was born in Alexandria, La, and thus had his origins in the Deep South, in that town of about 100 Jewish families. He eventually went to Yale, and New York University, finally finding his present job at Hopkins, in Baltimore, MD.
