Additional Notes From Spanish Trenches "Jack Kalleborn comes from a family of English gentlemen farmers transplanted to the United States. Jack's father became an engineer but Jack himself ran the family farm after several years of agricultural school. Although he had no political opinions, he went to the Soviet Union for two years to study the methods of collective farming. He wanted to know whether this system would work in the United States. He returned to the United States in 1934 and left for Spain toward the end of 1936.
