Jackson Burton Wilcox (b. June 16, 1918 – d. November 14, 2013) was an American Baptist pastor, artist, writer, and editor
with a ministry career spanning over six decades. He served in eleven churches, including St. Paul, MN; Aberdeen, WA; Chowchilla,
CA; Santa Cruz, CA; Lindsay, CA; Hollywood, CA; Panorama City, CA; and Quartz Hill, CA. His ministry included illustrating
published church newsletters and the underground newspaper Hollywood Free Paper for the Jesus People Movement with his distinctive
cartoons and drawings. This collection provides a unique window into the American Baptist church during the mid-to-late 20th
century as well as the Jesus People Movement heritage and its continued influence.
Also see the Hollywood Free Paper (in Duane Pederson, Jesus People International, and Hollywood Free Paper Collection, or
the Archived Periodicals), for Jackson Wilcox’s printed cartoons. Photos of his wife, Marjorie Wilcox, are also included in
the Pederson Collection.
