March - December 1923
3 folders, no index
These files document Col. Jackson's work as a fundraiser and publicist for the exposition. Two folders of correspondence between Jackson and members of the business community reveal Jackson's interest in the industrial division of the exposition which would emphasize developments in manufacturing, commerce, and management. The files contain several exchanges between Jackson and L. P. Alford, editor of the journal, Management and Administration, regarding Jackson's article, "The Next Half-Century of Industry: A Forecast Through the Sesqui-Centennial," which appeared in the journal in 1923. A page proof of the article is filed in with the correspondence. The third folder contains an engagement calendar in which Jackson recorded his activities from March 6 through November 27, 1923. Notations refer to meetings of the Executive Committee and other committees of the Sesqui-Centennial Exhibition Association board, subscription drives, luncheon and dinner meetings, speaking engagements, and travel to Harrisburg and New York on behalf of the exposition.
