Biographical history

Dr. J.D. Griffin, formerly General Director, Canadian Mental Health Association, and Professor Cyril Greenland, formerly School of Social Work, McMaster University, and now with the Canadian Mental Health Association, collected substantial research files on William Henry Jackson, the former secretary to Louis Riel. These records were collected in order to make a presentation on Jackson for the Canadian Psychiatric Association meeting in Saskatoon, September 28-30, 1977.

Custodial history

Some of the Jackson material was originally collected by the late Mr. Louis Blake Duff. Mrs. Blake Duff later turned it over to Professor Greenland.

Scope and content

This collection consists primarily of photocopies of correspondence, articles, photographs, sessional papers, and press clippings, related to William Henry Jackson (or Honore Jaxon, as he is also known) including copies of his correspondence. The originals of much of the material dates from 1885. The material is organized and recorded according to the structure that Griffen and Greenland have devised.
