Walter Clinton Jackson Records

 Collection
Identifier: UA 002.3

Scope and Contents

These records (Boxes 1-24) are the official records of the Office of the Dean of Administration (1934-1945) and Chancellor (1945-1950) of the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina.

Boxes 26-27 of the Jackson records contain material connected with the Citizens' Service Corps of World War II. Jackson was the Guilford County Director of the Corps, and the items included here are those which he received or created in that capacity. Here are found items of correspondence, newsletters, bulletins, progress reports, decals, and placards dealing with the entire scope of the agency's activities: clothing and hosiery collections, salvage and conservation campaigns, and war bond drives.

Photographs, clippings, speeches, tributes to Jackson, and other biographical material relating to his work and life at UNCG are in box 25. These papers were originally in the vertical file of the University Archives. One interesting item is a teaching aid for the study of biographies--a part of the course, Representative Americans, which Jackson taught at the college.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at scua@uncg.edu if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
