Term: Jackson, James Albert 1840 - 1921

Definition:

physician, b. Wolverhampton, England. He moved with his family to the U.S. and to Wisconsin in 1853, settling in Madison. In 1858 he entered the Univ. of Wisconsin, but his training was interrupted by the Civil War, during which he served as hospital steward in the 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry (1861-1864). Following the war, he entered Bellevue Hospital Medical College in New York City, graduated in 1866, and practiced medicine in Stoughton and De Pere before beginning his career in Madison. He was active in promoting medical societies in the state, was a founder of the Dane County Medical Society, and belonged to numerous professional organizations. He was best known as the founder of the Jackson Medical Clinic in Madison, which he organized with his sons in 1919. His son, REGINALD HENRY JACKSON, b. De Pere, was also a prominent Madison physician. He attended the Univ. of Wisconsin, and graduated from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia Univ. (M.D., 1899). He was house surgeon at the Presbyterian Hospital in New York City (1900-1902), and in 1902 returned to Wisconsin to practice with his father. He was surgical preceptor for the Univ. of Wisconsin (1914-1924), and clinical professor of surgery at the university medical school (1924-1933). He also served as president of the State Medical Society (1933), and of the Western Surgical Association (1935). F. L. Holmes, et al., eds., Wis. (5 vols., Chicago, 1946); A. F. and B.
