Not much known, except his college and home town. So I checked the Wesleyan athletics page and found he lettered in baseball and basketball at Ohio Wesleyan (Class of 1937). Also found this yearbook page, giving us a middle initial.
Trail runs cold there, but at least found a little bit more.

Born c.1912 or 1913 to Randolph T. (1873-1953) and Florence M. Guggenheim McAdams (1877-1952), the youngest of four children. Other siblings: Ruth (1903-1984), Helen (c.1909) , Richard (c.1910).
Married Martha Waddell July 23, 1938
From this information, I found John Wesley McAdams, born in Ohio at the right time.
And with his wife Martha.
