LizardKingFilter: What jobs, if any, did Jim Morrison have to make ends meet before hitting it big with the Doors?

The more specific, the better, such as locations. Or a trust fund kid? Mainly, I'm trying to find out if he ever worked as a bartender, and if so, where.

Well, his Dad was an Admiral in the US Navy.

Not a trust fund but a pretty good paying gig.

IIRC, he actually cleaned pools for a short time. You know, a pool boy.

He acted in promo films for Florida State University. There also some (uncited) info about his early life in the more info section.
