Jackson, James Albert, 1840-1921 "Autobiography of James Albert Jackson, Sr., M. D."


Autobiography of James Albert Jackson, Sr., M.D., part I. Early Days: Written in the last two years of his life, and edited by his daughters Alice F. and Bettina Jackson, this autobiography of James Albert Jackson, Sr. (1840-1921), a prominent Madison physician, is divided into three parts. The first part details Jackson's life in Staffordshire, England from 1840-1853 where he was first introduced to Madison through a pamphlet sent by a distant acquaintance in Boston, Massachusetts. Jackson details his travel to Madison with Dr. Joseph Hobbins (1816-1894), who was involved with early attempts to establish a medical school in Madison. The remainder of the article details his work as a 'gentleman farmer' as well as early life in Madison that included boating events, parties, and parades. (17 pages)
