PostSubject: Robinson traveled    Thu Jul 07, 2011 5:53 pm

While a senior at UCLA, Robinson met his future wife, Rachel Isum, a UCLA freshman who was familiar with Robinson's athletic career at PJC.[41] In the spring semester of 1941, despite his mother's and Isum's reservations, Robinson left college just shy of graduation.[42] He took a job as an assistant athletic director with the government's National Youth Administration (NYA) in Atascadero, California.[43][44][45]

After the government ceased NYA operations, Robinson traveled to Honolulu in fall 1941 to play football for the semi-professional, racially integrated Honolulu Bears.[43][45] After a short season, Robinson returned to California in December 1941 to pursue a career as running back for the Los Angeles Bulldogs of the Pacific Coast Football League.[46] By that time, however, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor had taken place, drawing the United States into World War II and ending Robinson's nascent football career.
