    Beverley Jackson was the Santa Barbara News-Press society writer from 1968 to 1992, documenting the gatherings of celebrities and local personalities for 25 years. As a participant in Santa Barbara's social scene, her "By The Way..." column provided that perspective in vivid detail to her readers.
    In later years, Jackson started one of the major collections of antique Chinese clothing in the United States and became the Santa Barbara Historical Museum's curator of Asian art.
    Originally from Beverly Hills, Berverley Jackson read more than 600 books on China, eventually writing seven nonfiction books and self-publishing her first novel.
    Jackson went on to write for two other Santa Barbara periodicals, the Santa Barbara Independent and VOICE, continuing to contribute stories until four months before her death in August 2020.
