Scope and Content
This collection includes material organized in four series: Private Papers, Personal Papers, Photographs and Printed Matter,
and Ledgers and Accounts.
There is little distinction between the private and personal papers except that this is the manner in which they were kept
in Mr. Jackling's office and this is the arrangement which is preserved at Stanford. The Private Files are essentially corespondence
with business acquaintances, especially Erle E. Daveler of the New York office of Kennecott. This file also contains letters
on the subject of Kennecott Copper's reorganization in 1936 and the acquisition of Utah Copper by Kennecott Copper. Miscellaneous
correspondence to friends and smaller numbers of business papers complete this series.
The Personal Files, with the exception of some weeding of printed matter, have been left as they were filed in Mr. Jackling's
office. They cover a wide range of topics including art objects, Missouri School of Mines, Clubs and Societies, donations,
investments, liquor inventories, property, relatives, taxes and publicity (under which are filed numerous periodical articles
about Jackling and mining properties he was concerned with). The bulk of the correspondence in this section dates from 1917-1956.
The photographs and the printed matter deal with Jackling and properties he was associated with.
The ledgers and accounts are of the D. C. and Virginia Jackling Trusts, financial affairs and the Woodside, California farm.
