About the Herbert W. Jackson Papers

The four field notebooks (Nov. 1971-Nov. 1995) concern the operation of the sailboats WAH-WHO I and II in New Hampshire’s Great Bay area. In these notebooks Jackson recorded weather conditions, wildlife observations, his analysis of local water samples, social activities, and detailed instructions on how to mark the Oyster River channel. The earliest field notebook includes information about his lectures and classes. The letter dated August 1996 concerns the sale of the WAH-WHO II to Robert A. Lehman of Easton, Pennsylvania. The postcard is from Mrs. Nobel K. Peterson to Helen and Herbert Jackson, date unknown.
