American Jewish lawyer and communal leader, Morris Carlton Troper served as chief of European operations for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee from 1938 to 1942. During his tenure, Troper focused his efforts on promoting Jewish emigration from Nazi Europe, organizing relief efforts and channeling funds to Jewish communities and welfare organizations. After the fall of France and the transfer of JDC headquarters from Paris to Lisbon, Troper spent most of his time in the US gathering support for European relief efforts. In 1942 soon after the entry of the US into World War II, Troper resigned from the JDC to enlist in the US Army. From 1942 to 1946 he headed the Office of Fiscal Direction, attaining the rank of Brigadier General. After leaving the army in 1946, Troper returned to Jewish communal work, lending his efforts to the resettlement of Jewish displaced persons and projects related to the founding of the State of Israel.
