Born in Mobile, Alabama, Adair was a manager in the Braves organization (he managed farm clubs for all three cities the Braves played in), as well as the Detroit Tigers, San Diego Padres, Montreal Expos, and the Chicago White Sox organizations.

Adair was later a major league scout for the Philadelphia Phillies.

He compiled a 1,611-1,305 (.552) record in the minors, but his managing career in the major leagues was limited to ten games with the 1970 White Sox which was en route to a franchise-worst 56–106 finish. He had succeeded Don Gutteridge on an interim basis on September 2 with the team's record a major league-worst 49–87.[1][2] His last game managing the White Sox was an 8–7 win over the Minnesota Twins at Metropolitan Stadium on September 13. He compiled a 4–6 (.400) record before Chuck Tanner took over two days later on September 15.[3] Adair was not retained by Tanner beyond that season.[4]

Adair also was a major league coach for the Braves (1962; 1967), White Sox (1970) and Expos (1976).
