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.
