PaJaMa is an acronym of the first two letters of the first names of Paul Cadmus (1904-1999), Jared French (1902-1989), and Margaret French (Early 20th century-1998). Paul Cadmus and Jared French became friends in New York City around 1925. In 1937 Jared French married Margaret Hoening, also an artist. And then for the next eight years Cadmus and the Frenches summered on Fire Island, where they formed their photographic collective.
