Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of three photograph albums, one college scrapbook, 103 loose photographs, and ephemera documenting the education, family life, travel, and teaching career of Mamie Marie Walton-Jackson (1916-2009). The materials span approximately from 1916 to 1968.
Mamie Marie Walton-Jackson (1916-2009) was born in Jim Crow-era Georgia and spent her life as a student, wife, educator, and mother. Jackson graduated from historically Black Clark College in Atlanta, Georgia, and the following year, in 1941, went on to marry Jerry B. Jackson. The birth of their only child, Durante Jackson, would follow six years later in 1947. She was employed as a home economics instructor, spending 1951-1952 at the segregated Buford High School in Buford, Georgia.
