Aquisition Information:

PROVENANCEThe provenance of the Laura (Riding) Jackson and Schuyler B. Jackson Collection is complex, the result of both gifts to and purchases by Cornell University. The Collection originated in 1965 when Mrs. Jackson decided to donate her papers to Cornell University, and began to send materials to the Department of Rare Books. She continued to do so until 1987. In addition, Mrs. Jackson bequeathed parts of the collection to Cornell University. Ms. Elizabeth Friedmann also donated materials given to her by Laura (Riding) Jackson which are included in the Laura (Riding) Jackson and Schuyler B. Jackson Collection. Other collections of letters written by Laura (Riding) Jackson were donated by certain of her correspondents or purchased by Cornell University. Several of these purchases and donations now constitute separate related collections. See Related Material.
