A Reflection on the Committed Life

(p.193) Epilogue A Reflection on the Committed Life

James J. Lorence

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter explains how Clinton E. Jencks was a man who struggled with compulsive behaviors that dogged him throughout his life. Not the least of his burdens was the reality that he was essentially a modest man who necessarily lived with the dramatic story of his own life in the movement for social justice. Given his consistent reticence about excessive focus on his personal achievements, it falls to others to document Jencks' substantial record of unselfish service to the human community. Like most people, he had a dark private side, but it was his bright public image that marked his relations with a variety of communities, whether labor activists, Mexican American progressives, Hollywood cultural workers, hard-rock miners, or academics in the radical caucus.
